Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to provide links to casualty details in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission database at http://www.cwgc.org.

Usage[edit]

{{CWGC|id=|name=|access-date=}}
  • id: (optional; will fetch ID from Wikidata if no value provided) the number found in the URL for the casualty (see "Examples" below)
  • name: (optional) the name of the casualty
  • access-date: (optional) the date the information was retrieved from the website
  • fewer-links: (optional) set |fewer-links=yes to disable wikilinks and prevent overlinking, i.e. if the template is used more than once in an article
  • mode: (optional) set |mode=cs2 to make the template compatible with Citation Style 2; defaults to Citation Style 1
