Overview

Dar es Salaam War Cemetery now contains 1,764 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, 60 of them unidentified, and 41 from the Second World War, 7 of them unidentified. The 112 war graves of other nationalities, the majority of them Belgian and German, all date from the First World War. The cemetery also contains the DAR ES SALAAM HINDU CREMATION MEMORIAL which commemorates 14 Indian servicemen whose remains were cremated in accordance with their faith. The DAR ES SALAAM BRITISH AND INDIAN MEMORIAL which stands within Dar es Salaam War Cemetery, commemorates by name more than 1,500 officers and men who died in East Africa during and after January 1917 (the advance to the Rufiji river) who have no known grave. The memorial was moved from a site elsewhere in the township and re-sited in Memorial Garden A. The earlier casualties are commemorated by a similar memorial at Nairobi, Kenya.

Credit goes to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, which maintains these final resting places of fallen soldiers across East Africa. They are a reminder to me that Africa should never again allow herself to be drawn into the conflicts of the great powers, because only...More

Well maintained site with a care taker who knew where to find my husband's great uncle's WWI grave who then opened a special area so that my husband could sign and make comment in the visitors' book.
