Africa missing soldiers

Post by NavyCdo412 » 23 Feb 2022 21:09

How many Allied soldiers (American, British, French and so on) are still buried on the North Africa battlefield? How many never recovered (I mean excluding unknown soldiers buried in war cemeteries)

At least fifty near Keren.The British keep their losses quiet.Hyenas dispose of any bodies in that area.A now vanished internet source but I have heard some whispers.Feel free to disregard.

Tunesia, French Marocco, Algeria… gave up counting but many is my guess and that’s just US and NON-US (mostly PHILIPPINE SCOUT). Have a look for yourself.
