  • A burial service has today been held at the @commonwealthwargraves’s Messines Ridge British Cemetery for an unknown soldier of the Royal Irish Rifles and an unknown soldier of an unknown regiment. 
Their bodies were found near the town of Wijtschate, south of Ieper. Despite extensive investigation by the UK’s Joint Casualty and Compassionate Centre it was not possible to identify the two men.

It is known that one of the casualties was serving with the Royal Irish Rifles when he died, with the Commission marking his grave with a headstone bearing this detail. The unknown casualty’s headstone commemorates him as a ‘Soldier of the Great War, Known unto God’. The service was attended by British Defence Staff, Regimental representatives, CWGC staff and local dignitaries.
