  • 1.1. Typically, the First World War started in the Balkan area with the Austro-
    Hungarian crown prince’s assassination by Serbs nationalists in Sarajevo and the
    consequent ultimatum of Austro-Hungary to Serbia. The internationalization of
    the war took place in late 1915, when the two opposing parties of the Germans,
    Austrians and Bulgarians (Central Powers) on the one side and the French,
    British, Serbs, Russians, Italians and Greeks on the other (Entente Cordiale)
    came to a conflict in the center of the Balkans and especially in Macedonia,
    creating thus the third Front.
    1.2. The Macedonian Front was created in October 1915. It was the second attempt
    of the Entente troops – the first one took place in February 1915 with an
    attack against Dardanelles which led to the slay of the British-French troops – to
    break the Front of the Central Powers troops and help Russia, which was receiving
    successive blows by the Germans and the Austrians. This Front by no means
    shared any of the significance of either the Western or the Eastern Front; while
    the course of the operations in the former front left the course of the First World
    War completely unaffected. However, it was a front where about 1.000.000
    soldiers were caught in and where several lethal combats took place. The most
    significant combats of this front aimed at the conquest of the town of Bitola in
    western Macedonia, in Kaymakcalan Mountain, in the Lake Doiran district in the
    east, and in Skra di Legen in central Macedonia.
    1.5. Great Britain from the very first start systematically founded permanent
    military cemeteries in the Macedonia region. Anyway as early as the 21st May
    1917, by means of a Royal Decree, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission
    was created for this reason. Great Britain’s policy concerning the founding of
    cemeteries was different than that of the other countries. Instead of establishing
    big cemeteries, where all the dead soldieres would be gathered, it preferred to
    create many smaller ones close to the battlefields and the big military
    hospitals.[4] This way, after the truce, the Commission proceeded to the removal
    of relics from those temporary cemeteries in order for them to be permanently
    buried in new ones. However, the reason why the British had chosen to establish
    all their cemeteries within the Greek region of Macedonia remains unknown;
    even in the case of the Lake Doiran district, when the crucial battles took place in
    a distance of about 15-20 km within the territory of the then Serbia and the Greek
    military cemetery as well as the Bulgarian – nowadays ruined – ones, are located
    in FYROM close to the villages of Valadovo and Fourka, 20-25 km away from
    the borders.

Како дојде до овој пост.

Имено одавна се спремав да пуштам пост за Англиските воени гробишта кои нели се наоѓаат во Автокоманда во дворот на Храмот Сцети Арахгел и Михаил – кој старите скопјани го паметат со назив Храм Славе. Имено тој во својот подрум е крипта т.е. таму се собрани коски од дел од војниците кои погинале во првата светска војна на просторите на Македонија.

Во дворот на таа црква се сместени и убаво средените Англиски воени гроништа.

Досега имав пуштено само пост со наслов
Св. Архангел Михаил Скопје – Храм Славе … Sv. Arhangel Mihail Skopje – Hram Slave … фото и видео сторија …

Тој пост на чудесно/магичен начин, преку новата интернет играчка ИНТЕРНЕТ ПРЕВЕДУВАЧОТ – дошол до еден од роднините од 118 британски војници кои се сохранети во рамките на Англиските воени гробишта во Скопје.

Се работи за внук на CARMELO CASSAR кој е еден од 118 тука сохранети. Имено господинот Luigi Cassar Manghi, од Малта пред некој ден ми пушти ваков меил:

Не знам на македонскиот јазик, па затоа се користи Google за превод од англиски јазик.

Почитуван г-дин Volan,

Мојот голем чичко CARMELO CASSAR беше малтешки војник кој умре во 1918 година и бил погребан во британскиот гробишта во Скопје. Од истражувањето знам дека неговиот гроб е референцирани D.8. и мислам дека неговото име CARMELO CASSAR е напишана на гробот. Може да ве молам пратете ми близок до слика на неговиот гроб плоча? Се разбира само ако живеете во непосредна близина. Или дај ми e-mail јавете се на гробишта чувар молам.

Со почит,

Luigi Cassar Manghi, Малта

Dear Mr Volan,

My great uncle CARMELO CASSAR was a Maltese soldier who died in 1918 and was buried in the British Cemetery at Skopje. From research I know that his tomb is referenced D.8. and I think his name CARMELO CASSAR is written on the tomb. Can you please send me a close up photo of his tomb slab? Of course only if you live very near. Or give me the email contact of the cemetery custodian please. Thank you.

Kind regards,

Luigi Cassar Manghi, Malta


Откако разменивме неколку меила, ја услушав неговата молба и така излезе овој пост, кој сеуште ме мачи поради грешка во скриптата, па на крај или на почеток ми јавува грешка – која еве се трудам повеќе од два сата да ја исправам но не ми успева. На крај ке го оставам постот вака.
