Join us for a fascinating and thought-provoking talk by Mike Sheil, photographer and recognised speaker for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission taking place in the beautifully restored Village Hall in Ramsden.
In his talk, Mike will examine how the vision of the men who established the CWGC, over a hundred years ago, still manifests itself in our annual collective commemoration on the 11th day of the 11th month. His talk will not be just about gravestones in cemeteries as Mike will tell the stories of some of the men buried in the “cities of the silent dead” and the lessons to be learnt from their example.
In 2011 the Commonwealth War Graves Commission asked photographer Mike St Maur Sheil to create their WW1 centenary book, For the Fallen. In the course of this work, he journeyed over 20,000 miles and visited 400 cemeteries around the world. His photography is exceptional in its ability to capture the emotion aroused by the landscapes of battle.
