Heroes of Great War honoured

Communities across Wiltshire will have the chance to remember fallen soldiers at the First World War Commemoration Event in Tidworth next month.

Each fallen soldier will be represented on a named cross placed on a wall of remembrance, which will provide the focus for the service.

The crosses have been made by thousands of school children across the county with each soldier’s name meticulously researched.

Brigadier Piers Hankinson Commander 43 (Wessex) Brigade said: “It is entirely appropriate that we recognise the significant sacrifice of Wiltshire soldiers – past and present – and also the many Service personnel stationed here whilst preparing to deploy on operations.”

The commemoration is at 10am on July 30 at Tidworth Military Cemetery.

Parking for the event, organised by Wiltshire Council and the Ministry of Defence, will be in a field adjacent to the cemetery. For more details, call (01225) 713152 or email events@wiltshire.gov.uk
