Shaping a nation’s sorrow: CWGC launches new online exhibition to mark the end of the First World War centenary
The CWGC is deeply saddened by the vandalism to the Halifax Memorial in Point Pleasant Park in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and our sympathies go out to the descendants and comrades of the war dead who will be so deeply affected by this news.
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.
