Unknown Warrior of World War I (British)
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

On November 11, 1920, the body of a World War I British unknown soldier, sailor or airman, was drawn in a procession to the Cenotaph. In ceremonies at the war memorial on Whitehall, King George V honored the unknown warrior and the body was then taken to Westminster Abbey where it was buried at the west end of the nave. The text inscribed on the tomb: 'They buried him among the Kings, because he had done good toward God and toward his house' is from the Bible (2 Chronicles 24:16). The memorial site which an estimated 1,250,000 people view at the abbey, is now one of the most visited war graves in the world. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
