Members Meeting 28.09.16

Today’s speaker was Bernard Hope who gave a nostalgic talk called ‘Their Name Liveth Forevermore.’

The talk was accompanied by slides and described the work of the Imperial War Graves Commission (which subsequently became the Commonwealth War Graves Commission) and their work in recording war dead and when ever possible marking their last resting places. It covered both the Great War and the Second World War giving details of the actual memorials set up in the cemetaries and the details sent to families and relatives of the servicemen.The work is a never ending task all around the work wherever wars have been fought. 

Yet another very interesting speaker.
