& Commission. As well as being a Hatfield Heath parish
councillor, Sandra has been a member of the British
INSTITUTE Legion for many years, and is a standard bearer, like her

the commander of a mobile unit of the British Red Cross
Children’s Parties in the Great War. Under his leadership, his unit began
recording and caring for all the graves they could find.

War Office and incorporated into the British Army as
Celebrations the Graves Registration Commission. In May 1917 the
Imperial War Graves Commission was established by

President. Once land for cemeteries and memorials had
Wedding Receptions been guaranteed, the enormous task of recording the
details of the dead began. By 1918, some 587,000 graves
Classes etc., etc., had been identified and a further 559,000 casualties were
registered as having no known grave.

were the formal features. During the 1920s over 2,400
01279 730 544 cemeteries were constructed in France and Belgium,
while work progressed in Italy, Egypt, Palestine,
Macedonia, Mesopotamia and Gallipoli. The Menin
Gate Memorial at Ypres, which commemorates the
names of more than 55,000 men on 1200 panels, was the
first memorial to be designed. Tyne Cot in Belgium, the
Helles Memorial on Gallipoli, the Thiepval Memorial on
the Somme followed. Later individual member states
erected memorials to their own country's dead: the
Canadians at Vimy Ridge, the Australians at Villers
Bretonneux and the South Africans at Delville Wood.
The Commission continues to preserve its cemeteries
and memorials. Renovation and maintenance forms a
major part of the Commission's responsibility. Each year
around 20,000 headstones are either replaced or
repaired. Occasionally military remains are found. These
casualties are buried with honour in one of the
Commission's war cemeteries. In 2009 the discovery of
250 Australian and British casualties from the Battle of
Fromelles required the construction of an entirely new
cemetery, unveiled in 2010. By preserving the memory
of the dead with simple dignity and true equality, the
Commission hopes to encourage future generations to 01279 882 822

SLOWDOWN IN CHEAP FLIGHTS GIVES
BOOST TO BRITISH ECONOMY
New figures published by the Office of National
Statistics show that the British are taking almost
20 per cent fewer overseas holidays compared
to three years ago, whilst the number of foreign
tourists visiting the UK is virtually unchanged.
This means a major boost for the UK Balance of
Payments and shows that the Government’s
policy of increasing Air Passenger Duty (APD)
is actually benefiting the UK economy, contrary
to the claims made by the UK ’s major airlines.
The latest statistics show a decrease in over-
seas leisure trips by UK residents from 60 mil-
lion to 49 million between 2008 and 2011
leading to a reduction in the UK ’s tourism trade
deficit from £20 billion to £13 billion. Inbound
