The App can be downloaded for free on Windows, Android and Apple phones and other mobile devices (tablets) from www.cwgc.org/app and allows users to:
- Discover war graves at former battlefields across the globe
- Find war graves close to where they live
- Download and navigate to a chosen war grave site
Casualties of the two world wars are commemorated by the CWGC in every corner of the globe – from the mud of the old Western Front in Europe, to the scorched deserts of North Africa, to the jungles of the Far East.
"With the new App you can find directions to cemeteries or use the ‘near me’ function to see what sites are in your vicinity – never before has it been easier to find these places of remembrance locally and internationally.”
