Cemetery pictures used with the permission of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission
Oued Zarga is approximately 80 kilometres west of Tunis, midway between
Medjez El Bab and Beja on the GP6 road. The road leading to the cemetery is
approximately 3.3 kilometres past the village of Oued Zarga and is marked by a
sign pointing to the left. The track to the cemetery is unmade and steep in
sections and access is not suitable for buses. The distance to the cemetery from
the main road is approximately 1.1 kilometres.
There is no register box at this cemetery and therefore the cemetery register and visitors book are only available should a visit coincide with the presence of the part-time cemetery guardian.
In May 1943, the war in North Africa came to an end in Tunisia with the
defeat of the Axis powers by a combined Allied force.
