    History

    In October 1917, during World War I, the 49th Stationary Hospital was established at Bralos along with rest and recuperation camps for Allied troops. It remained in use until April 1919. Many of the dead from the hospital—chiefly from the influenza epidemic—are buried in the Bralo British Cemetery. It contains 101 burials, 95 of which from the British Commonwealth.[2]

    Bralos was also the site of fighting between British Commonwealth troops and the Germans in the Battle of Thermopylae (1941).
