Saida War Cemetery


Saida, Saida district

The Saida War Cemetery, located in Sidon (Saida) in southern Lebanon, on a small road named Sahl Al Sabbagh, was opened in 1943 by units of British forces occupying Lebanon after the 1941 campaign. It was originally used for the burial of men who died while serving with the occupation force, but subsequently the graves of a number of the casualties of the 1941 campaign were moved into the cemetery from other burial grounds or from isolated positions in the vicinity. The cemetery now contains 176 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War and 9 war graves of other nationalities. It was designed by G. Vey.
