  • Description

    The British Legion has organized a Pilgrimage which brings Veterans and their families to visit Military Cemeteries in Italy. This group has already visited other War Cemeteries in other parts of Europe and Africa.

    The group is led by the Chairman of the British Legion Maj. Spinks. The religious ceremonies were presided by the Rev. Ronald Poyle M. C. and the Rev. D. J. N. Wanstall c.b.e., m.a..
    Today the group has visited the War Cemetery at Cassino which holds the remains of 4.000 soldier who lost their lives in the last conflict and the names of 4.000 more who are considered "missing".

    The two Reverends held two short services (valid for all Religions) to which the group as a whole participated.

    We see different groups placing flowers on graves.
