remembering great war hungerford

Pupils and staff from John O’Gaunt’s history department will be remembering those who fell in the Great War when they visit the battlefields of Ypres and the Somme.

The trip will include visits to the Tyne Cot cemetery, the Langemark German cemetery and the Menin Gate in Ypres and at the Somme they will see the Ulster Tower, the South African memorial at Delville Wood and the Pozieres Berkshire Regiment cemetery.

In this centenary anniversary year the school history department is inviting anyone involved with the school who has a relative whose name is on the Western Front memorial to contact the school and arrange for a member of the school visit to lay a cross and your own message on the grave. Contact office.jog@johnogauntschool.co.uk for more information.

The First World war is an important part of the history GCSE and this journey gives pupils a very real experience pf the trenches and hideous conditions of war at the Western Front. If you are interested and would like to research your own family involvement in the First World War, http://www.greatwar.co.uk/organizations/commonwealth-war-graves-commission.htm is a great place to start.
