Poignant live performances launch new war graves foundation
A live performance of Fallen Soldier – a song written by acclaimed author, Frederick Forsyth CBE as a lament for soldiers who did not return from the battlefield – opened the launch event for the Commission’s new charity the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation (CWGF).
The Commonwealth War Graves Foundation (CWGF) is a charitable foundation that highlights the work of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) by telling the stories of the 1.7m people the CWGC commemorates.
The Foundation engages young people and the wider community around the UK interested in the story of our common sacrifice and shared history.
By supporting the Foundation you will enable it to fund education and activities which will capture the public imagination, and highlight the work the CWGC does.
Together we keep their stories alive.
