Romanian burial in Belgium 1917

Recommended Posts

Perth Digger

Looking for the burial place of Lt D E Webb, 107 Squadron RAF, I came across the Grave Registration Record for Boussu Communal Cemetery in Belgium. In Grave 1 is an "Unknown Roumanian Soldier", killed on 17 March 1917. Did Romanian soldiers fight on the Western Front?

 

Thanks

In the spring of 1917, the French Military Mission began a large process of reorganising and retraining of the romanian soldiers in using of modern equipment. 

 

That's as much as I know

Read the link please, we 're talking about a POW working in a German Kriegsgefangenen-Arbeiter-Bataillon.

Thanks for the interest. I suppose he must have been a POW, but why his name wasn't known after the war (unless the cross went missing) remains unclear.
