WE WILL REMEMBER THEM – SATURDAY, 10th NOVEMBER, 2018

This special Cemetery Trail  honoured in particular the 31 fallen Holbeach soldiers from World War 1 who are buried or commemorated in the Cemetery.

At each grave there was a brief  description of the fallen and a Memorial Cross placed by the grave.

Commemorating a soldier who died in France and whose body has never been identified

The Trail  started at 2.00 p.m., and  the Chapels were open from mid-day so that more time was given to seeing the LAST 100 DAYS EXHIBITION.

There was  an opportunity to find TOMMY – the evocative silhouette that stands guard over each grave in turn.   A second TOMMY has now been purchased, thanks to the generosity of many local people in raising the necessary funds.

 

About 50 people came on the Remembrance Trail.
