29th Division Memorial, Stretton-on-Dunsmore, West Midlands

Event Details

  • 10 Mar 19 10:30 - 10 Mar 19 12:00
  • Commemorative
  • West Midlands


The annual commemoration of the 29th Division march past is taking place on Sunday March 10th. This year the service will be slightly different and will take place at All Saints Church, Stretton upon Dunsmore (CV23 9NA), rather than at the memorial itself. The service which commences at 10.30 will include the presentation of standards by the British Legion, readings by uniformed groups and the laying of wreaths and crosses. It is hoped that re-enactors will be present. The service will be led by the Lord Bishop of Coventry. Members are most welcome to attend. It would help if those planning to attend could let me know, in advance, on education@gallipoli.org. If members wish to have names of family, who served with the 29th Division, read out during the service, they should send these to me by the week before. This can be done whether the member can attend or not.

Ian Binnie, Education Coordinator.
