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.
There are only days left to apply to join the Commission’s Centenary Interns Programme in 2018. If you are aged 18 or over and are thinking about applying, find out how the first wave of interns benefited from the experience in the video below.
Nearly half a million people visited the CWGC Plymouth Naval Memorial to view the iconic sculpture Poppies: Wave, as it was fixed to a monument dedicated to remembering the war dead of the two world wars for the first time. Many visitors left special messages on the Commission’s Time To Remember wall. Here is a selection of the moving posts.
