The War Dead - 1939 - 1945 War Graves Commission Statement

I came across this article in The Times dated 4th October 1945


I was unaware that requests had been made for the repatriation of the fallen both during and after World War 2. Whilst I recognise the distress and anguish that non-repatriation may cause relatives and friends of the deceased, I think that the principle of "equality of treatment" is paramount The Imperial War Graves Commission were fully justified in re-stating their position.
