Commonwealth War Graves
During the war, planes and defences forces were based at Gander Airport which was an experimental flying station before the World War II. As the airport was the headquarters of an anti-aircraft regiment of the Royal Canadian Army most of the 100 airmen buried in Gander Cemetery were killed in aircraft which crashed in this area during the war. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission was established to mark and maintain forces by preserving the memory of those who died.
