A small ceremony will take place at Gartmore Church Yard, Stirling, today after the CWGC erected granite headstones for two men who died within a year of each other in the First World War and will now be the first war dead at the cemetery.
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.
