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.
A burial service for four Canadian First World War soldiers will take place at 13:30 at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s Loos British Cemetery in France.
To mark the end of the First World War Centenary, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) has launched its “Road to Peace” project. The project tells 120 personal stories of casualties who died during the final 100 days of the First World War, from 8 August to 11 November.
