WW1 Prisoners Interned In Switzerland

WW1 Prisoners Interned In Switzerland

During WW1 Switzerland was home to about 4,000 sick and injured British and Commonwealth soldiers interned principally in mountain villages of Murren, Ch√Ęteau d'Oex and Leysin from 1916 - 1918. The soldiers that we have been able to identify in this community, are principally those that died in Switzerland and were buried in St. Martin's Cemetery, Vevey.
