Castle Coop WW1 Commemorations

World War One Commemorations.

The Agent is helping research and co-ordinate the WW1 Centenary Commemorations for Castle Coop.

  • He is organising village visits  to Ypres and the Somme battlefields. This involves finding suitable guesthouses, and making the travel arrangements but more importantly, he spends a lot of time researching the area being visited first.
  • He is researching the WW1 experiences of  WLS  (in whose memory I cycled to Paris).
  • He is organising a War Memorial for Castle Coop.
