Armistice Centenary visit to Thiepval Memorial in France

During the half term I took ten of our Combined Cadet Force cadets to France, to be part of the Army Cadet Force Commemorative visits. 

This was a wonderful opportunity for the cadets and culminated in them being part of Service of Remembrance at Thiepval Memorial.  The Thiepval Memorial dominates the landscape for miles around and is the largest Commonwealth memorial to the missing in the world. 

We visited 4 of the Commonwealth War Graves around The Somme, including the Newfoundland Memorial Park and Beaumont Hamel and Sheffield Memorial Park.
