For the Fallen
Compiled by Peter Francis.
We're very proud to announce the publication of 'For the Fallen' - a new book for the CWGC, inspired by the stunning images of acclaimed photo journalist Michael St Maur Sheil and by the CWGC's remarkable efforts to honour those who died. From headstones in the remote Namib Desert to those in the lush undergrowth of Buff Bay in Jamaica, and from an isolated grave on a tiny island on Loch Shiel to the 72,000 names on the Thiepval Memorial in France, this book commemorates some of history's greatest and most devastating battles and the men and women who fought and died in them.
The book is £25 in addition prices for shipping the book are :-
Remembering Fromelles - A new cemetery for a new century
Compiled by Julie Summers.
In May 2009 archaeologists began to excavate the remains of 250 British and Australian soldiers, buried behind German lines after the Battle of Fromelles in July 1916 - undiscovered, for nearly a century until an Australian historian found evidence to confirm the graves, and men, were there.
This commemorative publication tells the story behind the search for these men, how they died, and the extraordinary efforts to give them the final dignity in death their sacrifice so richly deserves - in the first new Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery to be built in more than 50 years.
