Forget Never – The Somme Plaque Unveiled

The Forget Never – The Somme plaque listing the names of all those from Basildon Borough, Meaux and Heiligenhaus who died during the Battle of the Somme was unveiled in the Basildon Centre on Friday 10 February 2017 by Stephen Metcalfe MP, David Harrison Mayor of Basildon, Jo Cullen and Ken Porter, members of the Forget Never- the Somme team.

Three plaques were designed Lisa Smith and created by Spellbound Glass, Basildon and the other two were presented to our twin towns of Heiligenhaus and Meaux  in 2016, during visits by the Basildon Borough Twinning association.

The names of the fallen were listed alphabetically, so no distinction was made of the men’s nationality.
