CWGC makes historic return to Iraq and Chad
After an enforced absence of more than 12 years, staff from the Commission have made a historic return to Iraq.
The stories have been compiled by the CWGC’s team of historians and includes the remarkable account of Lieutenant Vivian Sutton, a First World War hero from Kent. During his service Vivian fought in many key battles across the Middle East and Europe.
Local Flemish families and tourists were given an insight into the daily work undertaken by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) at an open day in Belgium last week.
