Remembering Sir Reginald Blomfield
Wednesday 27 December marks 75 years since the death of Sir Reginald Blomfield - one of the first three architects commissioned by the then Imperial War Graves Commission (IWGC) to design cemeteries and memorials.
After an enforced absence of more than 12 years, staff from the Commission have made a historic return to Iraq.
Today (15 June) marks 100 years since Edward Harold Brittain – the brother of writer and Voluntary Aid Detachment (V.A.D.) nurse Vera Brittain – was killed in action while serving on the Italian Front.
