Oxon – “The Road to Peace is Paved with Headstones”
May 30 @ 18:30 – 21:00

“The Road to Peace is Paved with Headstones”
THE COMMONWEALTH WAR GRAVES COMMISSION

ITS HISTORY AND LEGACY

As we commemorate the many anniversaries of The Great War and The Second World War there has been much focus on remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice. This talk highlights the role played by those far sighted men and women who established an organisation, now known as the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, so that remembrance of their sacrifice will endure in perpetuity. We will look at the architectural and physical characteristics of the cemeteries and memorials as well as the underlying principles that govern their design.

In addition, we will have a brief introduction to the Commission’s presence in Oxfordshire and the surrounding area.

Dick in the last 5 years has become a ‘Champion’ and Volunteer with The Commission and delivers talks to local community groups; history associations and schools and escorts tours to the local CWGC cemetery at Botley in Oxford. Dick is delighted to spread the story of this extraordinary organisation


Deddington Branch will be hosting an Open Evening on Saturday 30 May in their Parish Church at which Mr Dick Richards of the the Commonwealth War Graves Commission will present the history of the Commission and their work maintaining some 1.4 million CWGC graves in 23,000 locations worldwide.

On the North wall, as an appropriate backdrop to his talk, will be our nine WWI battlefield grave markers – believed to be the largest group of such crosses in the UK.
Oxfordshire & Northamptonshire RBL members, families and friends are very welcome to attend.There will be no entrance fee. A cash bar for beer, wine, soft drinks, tea, coffee and light snacks will be available from 6.30pm. The presentation will start at 7.30pm and last approximately an hour (inc questions) Anyone travelling a distance looking for a meal might like to know there are several restaurants & pubs in the village.  See:  https://www.deddington.org.uk/directory/pubs-restaurants-takeaways/
