CWGC volunteer shares her experience
Following the success of the Commission’s pilot volunteering scheme at Plymouth Naval Memorial and Brookwood Military Cemetery, CWGC and its new charity CWGF will be offering new opportunities to get involved in our work across the UK in 2018. Here Emma Coupe, who volunteered at Brookwood this summer while it hosted the CWGC Centenary Exhibition – For Then, For Now, Forever, talks about her experience.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is marking the end of the First World War Centenary with 120 personal stories of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the last months of the war. One remarkable story is that of Risaldar Badlu Singh, from Dhakla Haryana, who died on 23 September 1918. The CWGC commemorates nearly 74,000 members of Indian forces who served in the First World War.
