CWGC & RFU Launch Rugby Remembers
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) and the Rugby Football Union (RFU) are proud to come together to launch Rugby Remembers – a project to honour rugby players from all levels who lost their lives in the First World War.
A burial service for four Canadian First World War soldiers will take place at 13:30 at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s Loos British Cemetery in France.
To mark the end of the First World War Centenary, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) has launched its “Road to Peace” project. The project tells 120 personal stories of casualties who died during the final 100 days of the First World War, from 8 August to 11 November.
