The Journey of the Unknown Warrior Centenary, led by John Hamill

Across the Commonwealth First World War Cemeteries in Belgium and France, row upon row of headstones bearing the inscription ‘Unknown Soldier’ of ‘Known Only unto God’ mark the final resting place of the nameless heroes buried in anonymous graves after the carnage of the Great War. The names of those with no known grave are listed on Memorials to the Missing. In Westminster Abbey an unidentified British soldier, killed on the European battlefield, lies in rest in honour of the unknown dead of the 1914 - 1918 War.

Join us as we pay our respects to all those who made the ultimate sacrifice on this special tour of remembrance that takes us from the Western Front to Westminster Abbey in honour of the Unknown Warrior.
