In memoriam

Gwalia Cemetery



Gwalia Cemetery, Ieper, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium, was opened at the beginning of July 1917, in the period between the Battle of Messines and the Third Battle of Ypres. It lay among the camps in flat, wet country and was used by infantry units, artillery and field ambulances until September 1918. The cemetery contains 467 Commonwealth burials of the First World War.

One man of the 6th (Inniskilling) Dragoons Service Squadron, Private Francis James Morrison, is buried here. The location of his grave is shown on the CWGC cemetery plan below.
