Remembering “the end of the beginning” - the weekend’s El Alamein ceremony in photos
Officials from more than 30 nations marked the 75th anniversary of one of the most significant battles of the Second World War at a ceremony in the CWGC’s El Alamein Cemetery in Egypt on Saturday.
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.
