All the Welsh regiments fought at the battle of Passchendaeleas the 38th (Welsh) divisionand lost 6,000 men. It was calculated that for every metre of ground fought over, 35 allied soldiers and 30 German soldiers were killed and 500,000 died all together in just three months.

 And what about the families of the dead – the Britain Empire lost nearly 9 million men- what is ever mentioned about the families. It just doesn’t bear thinking about...this is why as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 it is really important to do something special. This anniversary will never come around again and of course no one alive today will be here to see the 200th anniversary
