The 25th April is Anzac Day. This is not a widely commemorated date in the UK but highly valued in many other countries. If you would like to know more about what Anzac day means to many people then please follow the link below to a short video.
Our thanks to The Gallipoli Association who have invited the Friends to join them at a short Commemorative event on Sunday the 24th April in Brandwood End.
Despite the ‘lockdown’ restrictions, the Friends were able to support a small gathering to remember those lost as a result of the ill-fated Gallipoli Campaign.
FBEC Chairman Julia Griffin, Vice Chairman Coral Howard and member Pat Franklin joined Ian Binnie (Gallipoli Association), Colonel (Retd.) Bob Carruthers (Royal Warwickshire Regiment Association) and Richard Millington (Warwickshire Yeomanry Association) joined together to remember all those who served in the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign of World War One.
For those with an interest, you can follow this link to a brochure containing more details prepared by the Gallipoli Association. Anzac booklet.
