Workshop & Restoration Centre Service Advisor Represents Local Royal British Legion Branch

6th Sep 2018

Chris Waterhouse, Service Advisor in the Workshop & Restoration Centre, recently represented The Royal British Legion Martock branch at World War I commemorations in Belgium. 

 

Members of the Martock branch joined thousands on a pilgrimage of Remembrance to World War One battlefield that culminated in a parade and ceremony in Ypres last month.

 

The Great Pilgrimage 90 (GP90) marked 90 years since the original Royal British Legion Pilgrimage in 1928, which saw 11,000 World War One veterans and war widows visit the battlefields of the Somme in France and Ypres in Belgium, a decade after the conflict ended.

 

Chris toured some of the same battlefields and cemeteries visited by those on the 1928 Pilgrimage, before marching along the original route through Ypres, to the Menin Gate bearing the branch standard and a wreath.
