WW1 Veterans Remembered

Dr. Peter Rowell

Dr. Peter Rowell portrait

Dr. Peter Rowell presents a Historical View of his visit to the War Graves of the men and women who fought in European Wars.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission keeps their memories alive.

Established by Royal Charter in 1917, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission pays tribute to the 1,700,000 men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died in the two world wars. But as Dr. Rowell will show thereā€˜s more to the Commission than cenotaphs and cemeteries. In his talk Dr. Rowell will use pictures, recollections, audio tapes and his own personal impressions as he leads us through this remembrance program concentrating on WW1. It is a fitting tribute to those who served in Europe and the memories of this service.
