Dear all,
 
I just wanted to make you all aware of the next WW1 burial taking place on the Somme.
 
Two soldiers, one of the Dorsetshire Regt and one of the Bedfordshire Regt, were uncovered on the outskirts of Albert.
After extensive research and DNA testing JCCC ( Joint Casualty and Compassionate Centre) are still unable to identify the soldiers so the soldiers will be buried as Unknown Soldiers of the Great War on 16 November 2017 at Bouzincourt  Ridge Cemetery, Albert starting at 1030 hrs.
 
Any further information required you can contact me direct
Thanks
Dave

This event repeats every day for 45 occurrences


Passchendaele veteran R C Sherriff's ground-breaking play JOURNEY'S END broke a ten year conspiracy of silence in 1928 at its first  'one night only' showing in London with Laurence Olivier in the lead. 
 
It rapidly went 'viral', showing in 30 countries and 18 different languages by the early 1930s. 
 
Such was its shocking but profoundly moving evocation of the realities of trench warfare, and the extraordinary relationships men formed there. A critic at the time said it was "less a play than a memorial to the dead." Sherriff himself said he did not have to create the characters: "they walked out fully-formed onto the page." 
 
Its Centenary revival in Ypres is a fitting Remembrance event by not-for-profit MESH Theatre Co which takes war dramas to locations where they were fought "where history speaks." 
Groups and veterans particularly welcome. Shows at 3pm daily and 7pm on Tues / Thurs / Sat.  Please see www.meshtheatre.com for more info.
