When the Imperial Battle Graves Fee was established, its founding precept was the equality of therapy in demise, no matter a person’s rank and social or army life, no matter their faith, they might be commemorated identically. Sadly, the work of this report reveals that they fell quick and delivering on this precept. The I.W.G.C. relied on others to hunt out the our bodies of the useless, and the place it couldn’t discover them, it labored with the Workplaces of State to supply lists of those that didn’t return and remained unaccounted for. There could be little doubt prejudice performed a component in among the commissioners’ selections.

In different circumstances, they have been merely not supplied with the names or burial places. Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the Commonwealth Battle Graves Fee and the federal government each of the time and at present, I need to apologize for the failures to reside as much as their founding ideas all these years in the past and specific deep remorse that it has taken so lengthy to rectify the state of affairs.

Second, the fee will renew its dedication to equality in commemoration via the constructing of bodily or digital commemorative constructions. And at last, Mr. Speaker, the fee will use its personal on-line presence and wider schooling actions to achieve out to all of the communities of the previous British Empire touched by the 2 World Wars to verify their hidden historical past is dropped at life.
