Which corners of which foreign fields?

The 10 countries with the most burials from World War One

Using data from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (www.cwgc.org) we’ve been able to create a spreadsheet of the countries where burials of World War One occurred. Who would have thought Iraq would be fourth, and Togo, site of the first British Empire shot in World War I contains only one burial.

Download the spreadsheet.
