The Iron Harvest – a warning from history
The thousands of guns ranked along the Western Front during the Great War may have fallen silent a hundred years ago, but for the unwary they have left behind a terrible legacy.
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.
