The latest newsletter from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission has been released.

This contains lots of interesting information and links. Of particular interest is the report regarding some repairs that are being carried our at Lemnos' East Mudros War Cemetery. The report states that a section of the wall adjacent to plot 3 has collapsed. Work to repair the wall began on 1 October and will run until 20 November. During this time, access to the area will be restricted and visitors planning to visit the cemetery are advised to contact the Mediterranean Area Office in advance at maoffice@cwgc.org.

There are also interesting stories regarding the commemoration of the service of Indian sub-continent units in the First World War, as well as a story about Dunsterforce, which saw service in the middle east and central asia - occupying Baku on the Caspian Sea. Australians served in this force.
