CWGC marks 75th anniversary of the Battle of El Alamein
The 75th anniversary of one of the most significant battles of the Second World War will be marked at a ceremony in the CWGC’s El Alamein Cemetery and Memorial in Egypt on Saturday 21 October. The commemoration will be the largest for many years and, as the 75th, is likely to be the last on this scale. Ahead of Saturday's ceremony, here is more about the battle and the Commission’s work in North Africa.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) is searching for the specific lot or the cemetery of Private John McLeod's interrment.
