    It’s my absolute honour and a privilege to be working with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission as a trustee of their new foundation.

    As part of this endeavour, I’ve been visiting CWGC sites to discover more about the men from all over the Commonwealth who fought during WW1 and WW2.

    At Forli, I saw the impressive Indian memorial statute and found out more about the Sikh, Hindu and Muslim men who served side by side fighting for the Allies in Italy.

    I highly recommend others to make such pilgrimages to discover the stories of our forebears.
