We will join Belgian, French and German living history groups in the grounds of a Belgian Chateau that forms part of the actual battlefield. The Chateau holds a state of the art Great War museum holding many relics recovered from the district. The British contingent will also stage a march from the town of Zonnebeke to nearby Tyne Cot cemetery for a short service of remembrance.

Sherston Memorial Dedication

Last year the Great War Society helped to bring to the attention of the local population that many of Sherston lads had given their lives in the Great War but had no proper memorial. We also helped to raise cash towards putting a fitting memorial in place. This year we return to take part in the opening of the new memorial and pay our respects to the men who never came back.
