5th Nov Monthly Meeting – The Unknown Warrior 100 Years after WW1

5th November: It’s remembrance time, and 100 years after the end of the First World War we focus on the concept and realisation of the grave of the Unknown Warrior, which is in Westminster Abbey. Who had the idea, how it was approved and organised and how the body was selected and transported. The speaker does not charge a fee and we will be giving a donation to the charity of his choice. Perhaps people would like to wear their poppies at this meeting.
