The politics of the Imperial War Graves Commission 1917–1939

The politics of the Imperial War Graves Commission 1917–1939, Michèle Barrett

The politics of the Imperial War
Graves Commission 1917–1939
Michèle Barrett
The official British war graves policy was
equality. In practice, outside Europe there was discrimination against non-white combatants and labourers, many of whom were simply not commemorated. Michèle gives examples from the Indian Army and from the campaigns in Africa, and raises the issue: whose war graves commission was it?
