Poppies: Wave volunteers
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) is calling on local people to become volunteers at Poppies: Wave, which will open at the CWGC Plymouth Naval Memorial in August.
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.
