Carl and Malcom help teams divert from H4H rally to visit family graves
03 July 2012
Our Regional Supervisors, Carl Liversage and Malcolm Ross, have
completed the Help for Heroes European Rally 2012, acting as the
official recovery vehicle for the event.
But the contribution made by the pair went far beyond pulling
other vehicles out of the mud.
Carl and Malcolm provided the teams with a huge amount of
information on the CWGC and the cemeteries and memorials they were
visiting. As a result, the duo were inundated with questions and
interest and were able to help a number of groups divert from the
route to visit graves of relatives, or sites of special
Carl explained: "Malcolm and I introduced ourselves at the
evening camp in Normandy and showed the CWGC DVD and that's when
things really took off.
"We had teams wanting to know where particular cemeteries were,
could they divert to visit, where was the family member buried
within the cemetery etc. With our knowledge, and the aid the CWGC
website, we were able to provide all the information.
"People were amazed to find a little 'English garden' at the end
of a muddy track in the middle of a farmer's field!"
