The only lasting memorials to some of the most dramatic fighting of the First World War
In the 16 days of Operation Michael, the German and British armies both suffered terrible losses. The Commission commemorates almost 37,000 service personnel who died in France during the attack. More than 23,000 have no known grave and are commemorated on CWGC memorials to the missing.
One of the most decorated non-combatants of the First World War is being remembered 100 years after his death.
A rededication service will be held at 12 midday on Wednesday 24 October 2018 at Grangegorman Military Cemetery in Dublin, Ireland for Private George Chalmers.
