Von Berg recalled how, in 1919, architects in France were appointed by the Commission. "A notice arrived in my Orderly Room stating that architects were invited to apply for positions in the Imperial War Graves Commission. Without a moment's hesitation, I saddled my horse, galloped off to a neighbouring town, was interviewed and accepted," he said.
