30 British soldiers lie forgotten in a cemetery in Poland. They died while serving between 1921 and 1922. Until the outbreak of WW2, the MoD paid for the maintenance of the graves, since then they have been completely abandoned by the army they served. More info at https://www.ww1cemeteries.com/opole-town-cemetery.html .
It will not cost the MoD a penny if they simply re-instate the pre-WW2 arrangements and request the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to undertake the task. Funds are available from a special government grant to cover the expenses.
