Representatives of the Marlow branch of the Royal British Legion joined thousands on a pilgrimage of remembrance to a World War One battlefield in Belgium this week.

The Royal British Legion event, known as Great Pilgrimage 90 (GP90), took place between August 5 and 9 and is being hailed as one of the largest in the charity’s history.

The pilgrimage culminated in a parade and ceremony in Ypres as part of the end of WWI centenary commemorations.

Cllr Suzanne Brown and Katy Gearing represented the Marlow branch and the local community at the event as standard bearer and wreath layer respectively.

GP90 marks 90 years since the original Royal British Legion pilgrimage in 1928, which saw 11,000 World War One veterans and war widows visit the battlefields of the Somme in France and Ypres in Belgium.

Cllr Brown and Mrs Gearing toured some of the same battlefields and cemeteries visited by those on that pilgrimage, before marching along the original route through Ypres to the Menin Gate on the Wednesday, bearing their branch standard and a wreath.
