Default Hertfordshire Regiment War Memorial

Evening all,
I was recently in Belgium for the 3rd Battle of Ypres commemorations and in particular the unveiling of the war memorial for the 1st Battalion Hertfordshire Regiment near St Julien on 31/7/17 the 100th anniversary of their attack that day in 1917, it was a fantastic weekend run through the Herts at War project and I just wanted to share this pic with anyone interested, we now have a place to visit & remember those Herts men, Lest we forget,
Wilf.

Hi Wilf,

Thanks for taking the time to show mate, I know this was a project that was close to your heart. It also gives me immense pride to have gone to the same school that Lieutenant Colonel Page went to all those years ago. Back in the day, we had our music lessons in the house he was born and lived in.

All the best,

Andy
