War Cemetery - Digboi
The Digboi Cemetery of World War-II is of the Europeans (mainly British) deployed in this Front for joint Operation with the Chinese and the Americans under General Stil Well. Some British Officers of OIL who might have died were also perhaps laid here, may be due to lack of adequate facilities to send the bodies back home. However, the bodies of the Americans and Negros were temporarily buried on a plot of high land retrieved in coffins and carried back to their homeland. But the bodies or the remains of the chinese were permanently laid here.
