The work for the dead in the other major European theatre – Italy – took place under markedly different conditions. Italy was first an enemy, and then a co-belligerent, and post-war relations with Italy were, at times, difficult. There was no equivalent to the complex infrastructure centred upon the BAOR and the occupation of Germany, and no parallel to the situation in North-West Europe where the British were either seen as liberators or as one of the four governing powers of Germany.
