Year 4 Trip – D-Day 75 – Shorncliffe Military Cemetery / Gurkha Visitor Centre

Today Year 4 visited Shorncliffe Military Cemetery and the Gurkha Visitor Centre on Sir John Moore Barracks. At the Cemetary, Peter Anderson (local historian) showed us around the cemetery and brought to life the stories of the fallen. The children also had a moment of silence to remember those that fell 75 years ago on the beaches of Normandy. Afterwards, we visited the Gurkha Visitor Centre and was able to explore the exciting history of the Brigade of Gurkhas.
