War graves gardener picked for Invictus Games
Wayne (Harry) Harrod, a CWGC gardener who cares for war graves at a military cemetery in Cambridge, has been selected as a non-traveling reserve to represent Great Britain in cycling at this year’s Invictus Games.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) is helping those who cannot make the annual pilgrimage to Normandy to pay tribute to the Second World War dead. Every year veterans and relatives return to CWGC’s cemeteries in France to remember those killed on D-Day and the pivotal battles of 1944. In today’s unique circumstances tributes will instead be laid by our gardeners on behalf of those who cannot travel.
