‘Heroes at Highclere’ – 2 Day event

WW1 Exhibition Bus remembering (undivided) India’s role during WW1 was invited by the Indian High Commission for a charity weekend to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.

It was a weekend to say thank you, to remember those who served and those who saved in conflicts across the world both in the past and today.

Over the two days, Highclere Castle welcomed several thousand visitors to engage and raise money for UK and other countries’ veterans and charities.
