HC Deb 07 November 1921 vol 148 cc72-3W
Captain GEE

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that in some cases the inscriptions on the headstones of graves in France have become obliterated; and will he call for a Report from the War Graves Commission?


I beg to refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given on the 18th August last to the hon. Member for Barkston Ash (Mr. Lane-Fox). The expert report therein referred to, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. and gallant Friend, indicates that the legibility of the headstones is generally very satisfactory. Stones which have not turned out well are being replaced, and I shall be glad if my hon. and gallant Friend will bring to the notice of the Imperial War Graves Commission any particular cases of this sort that he has in mind.
