This years' Commemoration Service was held on Thursday 4th July in the Deans Garden , York Minster. It was a marvellous occasion with a rousing band and piper accompanying a very moving service dedicated to the brave men who took part in the battles. This 75th anniversary year was a particularly special occasion with the Archbishop of York giving the Address and many VIPs including our Patron attending the service in the beautiful and calm surroundings of the Dean's Garden, York Minster.
On the previous evening, Wednesday 3rd July, we held a film and talk at York University's Holbeck Theatre. Military historians James Holland and Robert Lyman showed extracts from the film Imphal and Kohima: Britain's Greatest Battle and hosted a fascinating Q&A session.
