CWGC marks the 90th anniversary of the Menin Gate Memorial
Today, the CWGC is marking the 90th anniversary of the unveiling of the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial with a commemorative service and opening of a photographic exhibition. We will be reporting on the commemorations as they happen.
Today (18 April) is the International Day for Monuments and Sites, which aims to raise public awareness about the diversity and vulnerability of the world’s built monuments and heritage sites and the efforts required to protect and conserve them. We have asked the Commission’s conservation team to tell us about four of CWGC’s impressive, but lesser-known sites from around the world. Which one would you like to visit? Vote in our Twitter Poll.
The first wave of 2018 CWGC Centenary Interns have arrived in France and Belgium, working with the Commission at some of the most important sites commemorating those who died in the two world wars.
