Moro River Canadian War Cemetery

The Moro River Canadian War Cemetery is located on high ground near the Adriatic Sea at San Donato, in the Comune of Ortona (about 5 kilometres south of the town) and the Province of Chieti, Italy. In January 1944 the Canadian Corps selected this site, intending that it would contain the graves of those who died during the Ortona battle and in the fighting in the weeks before and after it. Today, there are 1,615 graves in the cemetery, of which over 50 are unidentified and 1, 375 are Canadian.
