Graves of two Australian soldiers identified more than 100 years after their death rededicated as part of ANZAC commemorations
Rededications services for two Australian soldiers were held during ANZAC Day commemorations at two CWGC cemeteries this morning.
More than 800 family stories from the First World War have been preserved for future generations to share in a digital archive, created by the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation and the University of Oxford. Following a series of roadshows and community-led events, the free-to-access Lest We Forget online archive will preserve a snapshot what life was like for the wartime generation.
The Commonwealth War Graves Foundation (CWGF) is delighted to announce today that it has secured a £60,000 grant from Biffa Award in connection with the Association of Independent Museums. The grant, which is part of the History Makers programme, will enable the CWGF to develop a digital exhibition for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s Runnymede Air Forces Memorial.
