DescriptionSixth IWGC Annual Report for 1924-1925
Content NoteContents include:

Introduction written by Fabian Ware describing the origin of the Commission, the principles on which their work is based, some of the difficulties they have encountered and the general appearance and meaning of the monuments they are erecting, explaining the inclusion in the report of photographs selected to illustrate the general types of cemeteries and memorials and, in some cases the latest, examples of the Commission's work.

Refers to the chief event of the period having been the settlement of the question of permanent maintenance and the agreement of the participating governments that steps should be taken to provide permanently the income required for the maintenance of the graves and memorials at the present accepted standard of upkeep by establishing an Endowment Fund for the purpose. It was stated by Sir Laming Worthington-Evans, the Chairman of the Commission, on the 30th July 1925, in the British House of Commons, that it was the intention of the Government, in conjunction with the Dominion Governments, to set up an Endowment Fund of £5,000,000 for the maintenance of war cemeteries, and that it was proposed to ask the House to vote £50,000. Quoted the text of the Prince of Wales’s letter dated January 5th, 1926, addressed to the Chairman on the occasion of the appointment of the Trustees, on the task accomplished by the Commission in establishing the Endowment Fund.

Elaboration of the extent of the Commission’s work statistically and geographically, the design of the headstones, the architectural embellishment of the cemeteries (the Stone of Remembrance and Cross of Sacrifice), the horticultural treatment and the task of designing the memorials to the missing to bear the names of those lost in the various theatres of war. Descriptions of three of the larger cemeteries and the features unique to them, i.e. Terlincthun, Tyne Cot and Etaples. Explanation of the different architectural treatment afforded to the cemeteries on the Asiago Plateau, Italy; on the Macedonian front, and on the Gallipoli Peninsula, describing the designs of the Lone Pine and Helles Memorials to the Missing. Reference to other completed memorials at Port Tewfik to the Indian troops, the Memorial to the "Missing" of the Salonika Force in Macedonia, and that under construction at the Menin Gate, Ypres. Descriptions of the memorials which have been erected to the Naval dead at the three manning ports in the United Kingdom (Chatham, Portsmouth and Plymouth). Mention of a monument designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens to the missing sailors of the Mercantile Marine on the banks of the Thames for which the Commission have not yet been able to complete the negotiations for a satisfactory site; memorials to those to the dead of the Native East African Troops, designed by Mr. F. A. Stevenson, and the plaques designed by Lt.-Col. H. P. L. Cart de Lafontaine, being erected in the Cathedrals in French and Belgian towns where British troops were quartered.

Official approval has been received for the sites selected in the cathedrals of Orleans, Nantes, Marseilles, Nancy, Beauvais, Meaux, Bayeux and Le Mans, and these will probably all be erected and unveiled during the coming year.

In Italy the remaining headstones required for isolated graves have been erected, but the constructional work at Arquata remains to be completed, and certain difficulties had arisen in in the British War Cemetery at Staglieno, Genoa, where extra land was required for its architectural treatment.

Updates with the construction of cemeteries in the Balkan States including Philippopolis, Sofia, Dedeagatch, Roustchouck and Varna in Bulgaria; Skoplje and Chela Kula, Nish in Yugoslavia; Braila, Bucharest and Slobotzia in Rumania; Portianos (Mudros), the Turkish Prisoner-of-War and the Egyptian Labour Corps Cemetery at Lemnos, the Cemetery at Syra and the British Cemetery at Corfu in Greece and Macedonia.

Identification by name of the members of the Anglo-Palestine War Cemeteries Committee (Sir Gilbert Clayton, Mr. J. R. Rowlands, and Mr. C. F. Wolfe).

Changes in membership of the Anglo-Egyptian War Cemeteries Executive Committee owing to Major F. R. I. Athill and Mr. E. Shearer having left the country they were succeeded by Colonel J. B. Wells, C.M.G., D.S.O., Colonel on the Staff in Charge of Administration of British Troops in Egypt, and by Mr. John A. Crawford, Sub-Governor of the National Bank of Egypt, respectively. A summary of the results since their first meeting on 19th August 1918, notably the grant by the Egyptian Government of all the land for the War Memorial Cemeteries as a free gift; exemptions from legal fees, customs duties and other concessions and gifts. The year saw practically all construction work in the country completed, considerable success achieved with the horticulture and concentration and reburial of many isolated and scattered graves. Updates with the architectural and horticultural treatment of, and numbers of graves in, each of the principal cemeteries in Egypt including Cairo War Memorial Cemetery; Chatby War Memorial Cemetery, Alexandria; Hadra War Memorial Cemetery, Alexandria; Port Said War Memorial Cemetery; Kantara War Memorial Cemetery; Ismailia War Memorial Cemetery; Suez War Memorial Cemetery; Tel el Kebir War Memorial Cemetery; and Minia War Memorial Cemetery.

Note of the difficulty in those cemeteries in which the soil is heavily impregnated with salt, where horticultural treatment only became possible following a scheme of flooding the cemeteries and washing the soil after which the salt erosion consequently ceased. All the cultivated cemeteries are now supplied with water except Minia where it is hoped that a pipe line will be laid during the course of the year. Whilst the Commission are unable to undertake the repair of the many private memorials on war graves in Egypt which were falling into disrepair, those which fall down or are broken beyond repair are gradually being replaced by Commission headstones.

Good progress has been made in constructing the Memorial to the "Missing" of the Indian Army described in last year's report (see illustration on page 32). Description of the Opthalmic Laboratory which forms the Memorial to Egyptian Labour Corps and Camel Transport Corps which was completed during the year and handed over in January 1925 to the Egyptian Government (See illustration on page 31). Note of ceremonies held in the War Memorial Cemeteries, including on Armistice Day at Cairo and on 4th August at Hadra.

In Iraq construction of cemeteries and erection of headstones have proceeded satisfactorily during the year. Updates with the stage the construction work has reached in each of the principal cemeteries, including Basra, Amara, Kut, Baghdad, Alwiya, Baghdad Right Bank, Mosul and the German Cemetery at Baghdad; updates with the purchase of the land occupied by the cemeteries, and with concentration of graves into the War Cemeteries.

Considerable progress has been made during the year in East Africa, with crosses now erected in the cemeteries at Mombasa, Moshi and Dar es Salaam; with crosses delivered to Morogoro, Kilossa and Dodoma, and crosses destined for a number of other cemeteries awaiting the completion of arrangements for their transport. The constructional and horticultural work in Kenya has now been practically completed with erection of headstones at Nairobi, Korogwe, Kangata, Handeni, Mhonda Mission and Upanga Street cemeteries. Memorials to Indian troops have been erected at Moshi, Maktau, Taveta and Tanga. Those to native African troops will be at Nairobi, Mombasa and Dar es Salaam, but the erection has been deferred until a town planning expert reports on the best available sites. Owing to the progress of the Commission's work southwards it became necessary to transfer the headquarters from Nairobi to Dar es Salaam, and this was effected in December, 1924. H.R.H. The Duke of York visited Kenya in February, 1925, and laid a wreath at the foot of the Cross of Sacrifice in Nairobi Cemetery. (See illustration on page 34.)

In Germany three cemeteries were under construction, those at Cologne, Hamburg and Niederzwehren (Cassel) summarsing the stage the construction work has reached in each.
