BATTLE OF FROMELLES FIELD

On July 19 I travelled to northern France with Peter Barton, co-secretary of the All-Party Parliamentary War Graves and Battlefields Heritage Group to attend a ceremony to mark the 92nd anniversary of the Battle of Fromelles Field, and the end of the recent excavations there. As chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group I laid a wreath on their behalf - more images and details can be found on their website.
