Green Howards soldiers who fell during Kaiserschlacht offensive to be remembered

British troops on the move in spring 1918.

The men of the Green Howards Regiment who fell during the Kaiserschlacht offensive will be remembered in Richmond next month.

The men who died stopping the German advance from March 21 to April 5, 1918 will be remembered on Saturday, March 10 when their names and poppies will be displayed on the railings of the Friary Gardens in Richmond.

The event is part of the Richmondshire Remembers commemoration project.

This story continues after the adverts:


Richmondshire Remembers co-ordinator Gregan Davis is appealing for people from the area to come along and assist with putting up the display.

In keeping with the aim of Bridging Time, Generations and Communities, he is especially hoping to attract service veterans and children.

He said: “It is vitally important to keep telling the story of the sacrifice and bravery of previous generations who have enabled the us to live our lives in peace and freedom.”

The event will start at 10am in Friary Gardens and all are welcome.
