The Friends attended the Battle of the Somme commemoration event at Doncaster Minster yesterday, along with other heritage groups with a link to WW1. We customised our information display to include details of servicemen in Commonwealth War Graves at Hyde Park Cemetery. We also showed information on some of the individuals.
During the morning, there was a church service to mark the centenary of the start of the Battle of the Somme. The service was attended by two local MPs, Doncaster’s Civic Mayor, other dignitaries, local school pupils and members of the public.
