The Abuja Memorial - then and now
The Commission’s commitment across Africa bears witness to the ferocity of fighting that took place here. In Nigeria alone, the CWGC commemorates almost 4,800 Commonwealth servicemen of the two world wars at 40 cemeteries, memorials and individual graves. In February last year, the Commission completed a project to restore a memorial in Nigeria to more than 2,000 African servicemen who died in both world wars.
