    I visited Salerno British War Cemetery last week and came across a CWGC headstone for Captain E.A Kisellioff, Soviet Forces, died 11th Nov. 1944. I wondered if anyone knew anything about him or what his role was at Salerno.

    There were Soviet observers in Italy with the Allies. There is a photo of one on the Monte Camino thread.

    Thanks Owen. I thought it could only be as an observer, but wanted to check.

    Much posted probably but one I took a couple of year ago of the soldier buried at Cassino CWGC Cemetery.

    Hmm - just looking through CWGC for WW2 I find that there were in total 49 Russians in the results buried all over Europe and the Middle East and North Africa - surprised me anyway
