Gheluvelt Project 2020.
In 2019 a number of Ambassadors visited Ypres and undertook a 7 day visit to a number of WWI battle sites. As part of their tour they went to visit where the Worcestershire Regiment made their famous counter attack at Gheluvelt and, despite heavy losses, held the line, stopped the German advance and “saved the British Empire”. Whilst there is a memorial to the Regiment it is not fitting to the memory of the fallen. The touring party visited a number of other sites during the week and were overwhelmed by the number of casualties which were represented on monuments (to those whose bodies were not found) and in the cemeteries.
