County-wide WW1 commemoration in Wiltshire

People across Wiltshire are being invited to attend a special county-wide event to commemorate the sacrifice made by 10,000 Wiltshire soldiers during the First World War. 

The Wiltshire Council and Ministry of Defence-organised First World War Commemoration Event, which takes place on Wednesday 30th July at 10.00am at Tidworth Military Cemetery, will give communities across the county the opportunity to remember the fallen soldiers in a fitting way.

Each fallen soldier will be represented on a named cross and placed on a wall of remembrance which will provide the focus for the service. The crosses have been made by thousands of local school children across the county with each soldier’s name meticulously researched.
