The story of the ‘boy wonder’ Brigadier General Roland Boys Bradford VC
Roland was only 25-years-old when he was killed. The CWGC’s Assistant Historian Max Dutton, also 25-years-old, tells the story of his personal hero; winner of the Victoria Cross and the youngest ever Brigadier General in the history of the army.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) is seeking to reunite the family of a First World War naval veteran with his medal after it was left at CWGC’s Tyne Cot Cemetery, Belgium.
Visitors are invited to attend a special ceremony at Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bristol, to mark the completion of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s (CWGC) restoration work to preserve grave markers and memorials to the war dead.
