The Wales Memorial in Flanders Campaign (Registered Charity 1151256) was set up to correct this. Land has been given by the Belgian town of Langemark, fittingly just where the Welsh Division fought so bravely in the Third Battle of Ypres in 1917. This site will be landscaped, and a cromlech surmounted by a Welsh dragon will be erected there. The campaign has raised over £60,000 from individuals and groups so far, but it still needs around £30,000 to meet its target of unveiling the memorial in August 2014.
The campaign is supported by the Welsh and United Kingdom Governments, and by prominent representatives of Welsh civic, legal, sporting and political life. One of the campaign’s distinguished supporters is Field Marshal the Lord Guthrie of Craigiebank GCB LVO OBE DL, formerly of the Welsh Guards.
On January 31st, Lord Guthrie was the guest speaker at a dinner at Christ College in aid of the charity, which was held in the school’s Dining Hall by kind permission of the Head, Mrs Emma Taylor.
The aim of the evening was to raise awareness and funds so that the brave men and women of Wales who took part in the Great War are given the honour they deserve 100 years after the outbreak of that war.
