A rededication service for Private John Anderson, of the 4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders, will be held at 2pm at the CWGC’s Birr Cross Roads Cemetery, Belgium.
The 75th anniversary of one of the most significant battles of the Second World War will be marked at a ceremony in the CWGC’s El Alamein Cemetery and Memorial in Egypt on Saturday 21 October. The commemoration will be the largest for many years and, as the 75th, is likely to be the last on this scale. Ahead of Saturday's ceremony, here is more about the battle and the Commission’s work in North Africa.
Rededication ceremonies were held for two First World War soldiers at CWGC cemeteries in Belgium today, more than 100 years after they died.
