Hardwicke & District Branch

Ypres 100KM March 2010 -2011

Hardwicke and District Ypres 100 km March

Hardwicke and District Branch members take part in the "100KM van Ieper". This event is held annually in the Belgian City of Ypres and the Branch has now established it's attendance at this event on an annual basis.

Branch Events

This event enables members of Hardwicke and District Branch to promote and experience, at first hand the values of the Royal British Legion. Three important values, Comradeship, Fundraising and Remembrance are a common thread, amongst others, throughout the march in which members are challenged to march 100km around the Great War City of Ypres.

Branch Events

Throughout the Ypres 100km, our members are literally marching through the history of the Great War. The march takes place around the whole area of what was the Ypres Salient. This enables us, not only to pay our respects to the fallen but to also learn about the conflict and the men and women who took part. Team  members also represent our Branch and Community each night at 8.00pm at the Menin Gate for Last Post Ceremony.

Hardwicke and District Branch will once again be entering a team in the next "100km March" to be held over the weekend of 18th, 19th 20th May 2012.
