CWGC wins people's choice award for first Gardening Scotland garden
CWGC along with veterans’ charity Glen Art, and the Wilfred Owen Association has been awarded the people's choice award and a silver medal for this year’s Gardening Scotland (June 2 to 4). The garden was created to commemorate the CWGC’s centenary and Wilfred Owen’s stay at Craiglockhart in Edinburgh in 1917.
People have come together across the world at Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) cemeteries and memorials this week to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice.
Today, the leaders of Britain, France and Belgium have toured Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemeteries and memorials ahead of the hundredth anniversary of the Armistice.
