Remember the fallen

MEMBERS of the public are being urged to take part in War Graves Week, which runs until May 28.

It’s an annual event which commemorates the fallen from the First and Second World Wars.

The aim is to encourage people to come together and discover the World War heritage on their doorstep – learning about the stories of those commemorated by the Commonwealth Grave Commission (CWGC) and the skills, dedication and expertise of those CWGC staff and volunteers who work to keep their memory alive.

This year the CWGC has rolled out new augmented reality technology at ten cemetery locations to tell the stories of the fallen. It will enable people to go on walking tours complete with biographies and photographs of some of those commemorated. It is available at: Brookwood Military Cemetery, Harrogate (Stonefall) Cemetery, Manchester Southern Cemetery, Cambridge City Cemetery, Seaford Cemetery, Plymouth Naval Memorial, Cannock Chase War Cemetery, Tower Hill Memorial, Edinburgh (Comely Bank) Cemetery and Cardiff (Cathays) Cemetery.
