Meet the CWGC Centenary Interns
The first wave of interns to join the CWGC’s centenary programme have been in post at some of the Commission’s most well-known sites since the beginning of June. This week, they joined commemorations at the CWGC Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial marking the 90th anniversary of its unveiling, and have been delivering presentations about the monument at the Ieper Visitor Information Centre.
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.
