CWGC intern marks 100th anniversary of her great great great uncle's death
The second wave of CWGC interns are now in post at the Commission’s Tyne Cot Cemetery and Thiepval Memorial. Emily Robins, from Dorset, is one of the six based in France. This week, she travelled to Belgium to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of her great great great uncle, Captain Alfred Charles Bratt, who is buried at Tyne Cot Cemetery.
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.
