The Necropolis Line: a CWGC Train Journey from Battlefield to Grave
The CWGC is giving you the chance to follow the final journey made by hundreds of First and Second World War servicemen and women on their way to burial.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is marking the end of the First World War Centenary with 120 personal stories of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the last months of the war. One remarkable story is that of Risaldar Badlu Singh, from Dhakla Haryana, who died on 23 September 1918. The CWGC commemorates nearly 74,000 members of Indian forces who served in the First World War.
