The Annual Twinning visit on 11th of November for an early morning service at Étaples War Cemetery, the largest of its kind in France, which is the last resting place for some 11,500 soldiers who came to Europe from throughout the British Commonwealth to fight in the Great War.

We then continued to the joint commemorations at Berck sur Mer with our French friends, at the town War Memorial.  This was followed by a reception, music and presentations, before a very nice meal at a nearby restaurant.
