Commemorating the dead of war

WARKWORTH and Amble District Royal British Legion is hosting a special event later this month.

A film show and talk will be presented by Ranald Leask, focusing on The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC).

It will give people an insight about the work CWGC does all over the world to commemorate the war dead, as well as building and maintaining cemeteries and memorials, and establishing and preserving records.

The event takes place on Thursday, September 15, at The Sun Hotel, Warkworth, from 7.30pm.

The cost is £4 per person, which can be paid on entry, and includes a donation to CWGC. There will also be a raffle. All welcome.
