Can anyone tell me why the US servicemen killed in Sicily during Operation Husky were disinterred and moved to a cemetery on the Italian mainland? Carlo D'Este in Bitter Victory states that they were originally buried in four cemeteries at Licata,Gela,Catania and Palermo. The British and Commonwealth dead were buried and remain on Sicily at Catania, Syracuse and Agira. There must have been a particular reason for the move in April 1947. Colin.
