The Commonwealth War Graves Commission – and the Newhaven War Graves

Speaker: Ian Everest

Ian Everest's interests in this organisation started 35 years ago when he travelled to Northern France to visit the grave of his great uncle. Like many others who have visited the war cemeteries, he developed a great respect and admiration for the high standards of their presentation and maintenance.. The talk will look at the origins of the Commission , the work involved in constructing the cemeteries and how it manages to inspire new generations to honour those who fell for their country. Ian will also look at the war graves in the Newhaven Cemetery and the 'missing' German military graves from the Second World War.

Guests welcome: Entrance £5.00
