Poets of the Great War: Miles Jeffrey Game Day
Today, 27 February, marks 100 years since war poet Flight Commander Miles Jeffrey Game Day was killed in action flying over the North Sea.
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.
