Battlefield sites on our tours

The CWGC has launched a new app which can help teachers locate war graves both on the battlefields and in their own locality.

In October 2014, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission launched a new app which helps people locate CWGC war graves using GPS technology.  The app, which is free to download for Windows, iOS and android platforms allows the user to locate any of the CWGC cared-for war graves at more than 23,000 locations in 153 countries worldwide.

The app allows you to locate war graves based on your current location and to search for specific sites or places if you are planning a future visit.

This can be invaluable to teachers while visiting the battlefields but also for locating war graves in local cemeteries. It has never been easier to locate and visit war graves.
