First World War Commemoration Event – Tidworth Military Cemetery – 30 July 2014

Heritage in Wiltshire

You are invited to attend a county-wide First World War Commemoration Event on Wednesday, 30 July at 10am at Tidworth Military Cemetery.

This event will be for communities across the county to come together to mark and commemorate the sacrifice made by 10,000 soldiers from Wiltshire during the First World War. Each fallen soldier will be represented on a named cross – the names researched, and the crosses produced by Wiltshire school children. Each cross will be placed on a wall of remembrance which will provide the focus for this special event.

This event is open to anyone who wishes to attend the service of remembrance and reflect on the huge sacrifice made by so many from Wiltshire. Please extend this invitation in your local community as there is the capacity to host up to 10,000 attendees at the cemetery and we recognise that many people will want to participate…
