CWGC Hosts International Remembrance Ceremonies

11 November 2015

Last weekend, remembrance services were held at CWGC cemeteries and memorials around the world.

The services were carried out on the Sunday closest to 11 November, Armistice Day, to remember those who fought and died during the First and Second World Wars.

Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) representatives attended many of the ceremonies and were touched by your dedication.
