Four First World War soldiers buried alongside their comrades
A burial service was today held at the CWGC’s Loos British Cemetery in France for an unknown soldier of the Machine Gun Corps and three unknown soldiers of unknown regiments.
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.
