Opening of the Memorial Garden to the Hampshire Regiment at Serles House – Friday 1st August

Winchester Memorial 1

A very moving and poignant occasion. It is a tragic sight to see row upon row of tiny wooden crosses each with a poppy pinned to it placed into the ground by the cadets. One for each of the 10,250 plus soldiers from the Hampshire Regiment who died both during the First and Second World Wars. The occasion was attended by many dignitaries from the services and the County.
