First wave of CWGC interns share their experience
From helping visitors at some of the Commission’s most well-known sites to meeting the royal family at commemorations marking the Centenary of Passchendaele, the first wave of interns to join the CWGC’s centenary programme share their experience as their three-month stint with the Commission comes to an end.
George Edwin Ellison is believed to be the last British soldier killed on the Western Front before the Armistice brought the fighting to an end. He is buried in St Symphorien Military Cemetery, near Mons.
People have come together across the world at Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) cemeteries and memorials this week to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice.
