Commonwealth War Graves Commission

Constituted in May 1917, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission is an intergovernmental organisation that commemorates Commonwealth of Nations military service members who lost their lives while fighting the two World Wars. A new report released by this commission revealed the existence racism in the commemoration of Black and Asian service personnel who were martyred while fighting for the British Empire. They were found to be unequally honoured when compared to their white comrades.
