In conversation Peter and David chat everything from remembrance and respect, differing sites globally, Edwin Lutyens and consideration for historic designs to modern day maintenance and just how places and spaces to remember the great fallen are so very well cared for. Of note, The CWGC cemeteries, burial plots and memorials are a lasting tribute to those who died in some 154 countries across the world.
My thanks to David and the team at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
