Cavell van, Bodiam, Fri 8 June 2012 2. In 1920 the van was used to repatriate the body of the Unknown Warrior from the Western Front for burial in Westminster Abbey. Here are three views of a modern reconstruction of the coffin on its catafalque. The barrels contained soil from Flanders, in which the Unknown Warrior was buried in the abbey.
