CWGC commemorates the centenary of the loss of HMS Vanguard
The CWGC is encouraging people to remember the men commemorated on the Commission’s naval memorials who lost their lives 100 years ago on HMS Vanguard and have no known grave but the sea.
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.
