The Austro-Hungarian military cemetery is located above the village of Kal nad Kanalom. Except for the fence and corner columns that delimit the onetime cemetery, no visible traces of it survive. By the end of October 1917, 53 soldiers had been buried in the cemetery, 23 of them were unknown. After the war, Italian authorities exhumed soldiers from several cemeteries in the vicinity and transferred their mortal remains to this cemetery; however, the number of these reburied soldiers is not known. At that time, both Austro-Hungarian and Italian soldiers were buried in the cemetery. In the 1930s, the latter were exhumed and transferred to the Italian charnel house at Oslavia/Oslavje.
