PEOPLE are invited to a special countywide event commemorating the sacrifice made by 10,000 Wiltshire soldiers during the First World War.

The Wiltshire Council and Ministry of Defence-organised First World War event is on July 30 at 10am at Tidworth Military Cemetery, and will give communities across the county a chance to remember the fallen soldiers.

Every fallen soldier will be represented on a named cross placed on a wall of remembrance which will provide the focus for the service. The crosses have been made by thousands of local schoolchildren across the county with each soldier’s name meticulously researched.
