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.
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.
