    I took this photo in 2006 at the Canadian War Cemetry at Groesbeek in Holland. You would not really expect to find a Red Army soldier there!

    I have also seen RKKA graves at other Allied cemeteries on the Western front.



    Cheers, Ade.

    An interesting grave indeed!

    Were there any Soviet Soldiers in that area during the war?

    Hi Guys, my frends and I have a theory that these were former Soviet POW's or maybe even men that fought previously in German Eastern volunteer units which turned themselves over to the British/Canadian forces and fought, or more likely, served in some form of auxiliary helper status and were later KIA.

    Cheers, Ade.
