First World War soldier missing for over a century laid to rest
A burial service was today held for a First World War soldier whose body was found more than a century after he was killed on the first day of the Battle of Messines.
A burial service for four Canadian First World War soldiers will take place at 13:30 at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s Loos British Cemetery in France.
To mark the end of the First World War Centenary, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) has launched its “Road to Peace” project. The project tells 120 personal stories of casualties who died during the final 100 days of the First World War, from 8 August to 11 November.
