CWGC's Casualty Archive added to UNESCO UK Memory of the World register
To mark International Archives Day today (9 June), the Commission and UNESCO are delighted to announce the addition of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s Casualty Archive to the UNESCO UK Memory of the World Register.
After an enforced absence of more than 12 years, staff from the Commission have made a historic return to Iraq.
Today (15 June) marks 100 years since Edward Harold Brittain – the brother of writer and Voluntary Aid Detachment (V.A.D.) nurse Vera Brittain – was killed in action while serving on the Italian Front.
