Annoeullin was held by the Germans from an early date in the War until shortly before the Armistice. No.15 Casualty Clearing Station came to Don on the 25th October, 1918, and remained until the 19th January, 1919, and No.32 came at the end of November and left at the end of December. From these two hospitals soldiers were buried in Don Communal Cemetery, and later a number of bodies were brought in from the neighbouring fields.
