Brian Blessed OBE opens CWGC's centenary exhibition
English actor and adventurer, Brian Blessed OBE, visited the CWGC’s Brookwood Military Cemetery today to launch the Commission’s centenary exhibition, For Then, For Now, Forever.
After an enforced absence of more than 12 years, staff from the Commission have made a historic return to Iraq.
Today (15 June) marks 100 years since Edward Harold Brittain – the brother of writer and Voluntary Aid Detachment (V.A.D.) nurse Vera Brittain – was killed in action while serving on the Italian Front.
