Burial ceremony of two Indian soldiers who died in the World War-1 was held at the French Military Cemetery in La Gorgue on 12 November 2017. In the excavations held last year on the southern side of Richebourg village near Laventie Military Cemetery two human remains were found. On examining their remains, the two bodies were identified as martyrs of the 39th Garhwal Rifles of Indian Army. More than 74,000 Indian soldiers made ultimate sacrifice in the World War-1 and of which nearly 4,500 died in France and Belgium.
