Meet the first CWGC interns of 2018
The first wave of 2018 CWGC Centenary Interns have been in France and Belgium for over a month, working with the Commission at some of the most important sites commemorating those who died in the two world wars. Here are some of the interns who beat off competition from hundreds of applicants to join the CWGC Centenary internship.
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.
