This is a project to try and identify the names of all casualties (lost their lives) of the land forces of the British Expeditionary Force and the places where they lay at rest or where they are commemorated. It does not include men from naval units or those of the airforce, as this needs to be a separate exercise and is more difficult to achieve in identifying who took part. The period i have chosen, is the start of the German attacks on the low countries (The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg) on 10 May 1940, until the end of June 1940. Operation Dynamo covered the bulk of the evacuation and started on the 26th May and concluded on the 4th June. There were many other operations, actions and evacuations taking place before Operation Dynamo and after it. I have identified 11,945 casualties of the land forces who lost their lives between 10 May and 30 June. 4508 of them have no known grave and are commemorated on the Dunkirk Memorial in France. (The names include those who died after being captured and died in captivity right up to the time when the war ended). The other 7437 casualties who have a known resting place, are buried in 6 countries and in 478 cemeteries:- The Netherlands - 14 cemeteries - 29 men. Belgium - 131 cemeteries - 2348 men Luxembourg - 1 cemetery - 34 men France - 327 cemeteries - 5,012 men Poland - 2 cemeteries - 3 men Germany - 3 cemeteries - 11 men. The men in Poland and Germany died in captivity shortly after being captured. The lists do not include men who were successfully evacuated to the UK, but later died of their wounds. It would be difficult to verify this without access to their service records. An impossible task as the records are not in the public domain and when they are eventually available, would probably cost too much to review. Attached are pdf’s which list the countries and the cemeteries, but not the men’s names. This will be an ongoing lenghty exercise. (The lists may contain the occasional error, or omission. For this i apologise in advance. Please let me know if you find any).
