Commonwealth War Grave Walk

On Saturday 11th May 2024 Lizzie O’Sullivan took a Commonwealth War Grave (CWGC) walk in the SOC.  This walk was specifically for the CWGC as part of the CWG May tours programme. This was Lizzie first walk for the CWG and the weather was sunny and warm.

The tour started at the Cross of Sacrifice with a short account of how the cross came into being at SOC.  The group then visited several CW graves that included both WW1 and WW2 and were from Army, Royal Navy, Merchant Navy, Royal Flying Corps and Foreign Nationals from South Africa, Ireland and Canada.

Lizzie would like to thank Val Ferguson for her help and input on the tour and to the FOSOC taskers who strimmed around the graves and made a pathway to the grave so we could get close the grave itself. Lizzie will be running a CWG Tour on the first Saturday of the month from July to November if FOSOC members are interested and want come along it’s ‘Free’ but booking is via the CWGC website.
