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.
A community group visited the Commission’s Maidenhead head office to lay a cross on the memorial bearing the name of one of their casualties, as part of a project marking the centenary of the First World War.
Today marks the 75th anniversary of Operation Chastise, better known as the Dambusters Raid – one of the most audacious and technically difficult bombing operations of the Second World War.
