Service of Remembrance
Old Ellesmerians will gather at the Tyne Cot Memorial for an open-air Service of Remembrance in memory of the many Fallen of Ellesmere College who gave their lives in both world wars and other conflicts.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is marking the end of the First World War Centenary with 120 personal stories of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the last months of the war. One remarkable story is that of Risaldar Badlu Singh, from Dhakla Haryana, who died on 23 September 1918. The CWGC commemorates nearly 74,000 members of Indian forces who served in the First World War.
