CWGC statement on War Graves in Algeria
The CWGC is deeply saddened by the damage to graves at La Reunion War Cemetery near Bejaia, Algeria, and our sympathies go out to the descendants and comrades of the war dead who will be so deeply affected by this news.
People have come together across the world at Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) cemeteries and memorials this week to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice.
Today, the leaders of Britain, France and Belgium have toured Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemeteries and memorials ahead of the hundredth anniversary of the Armistice.
