Tatura War Cemetery
The Tatura Museum was closed when I left this morning, so I thought I'd drive out to the German War Cemetery. It lies next to the main cemetery, not far from town.
Established in 1958, it is the burial place of 250 Germans who died in internment and prisoner of war camps in Australia during the First and Second World Wars. Most of those buried in the cemetery were civilian internees.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission maintains it on behalf of the Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge.
