Project to recognise servicemen

SERVICEMEN and women who died in the two world wars but whose names are not on official casualty lists are to be officially recognised thanks to a new project.

The National Army Museum, Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) and Army have teamed up to investigate the cases of those who may be entitled to be commemorated as casualties of the First and Second World Wars, but currently are not.

Each year, the CWGC receives claims from descendants.

From this month, the National Army Museum is employing two full-time members of staff to investigate each case.
