The meeting will be preceded by a short A.G.M.

As part of the commemorations for the First World War, in 2014 Bromsgrove Branch will be relaying information from Remember the Fallen, a project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, to catalogue Worcestershire soldiers from WWI.
The project covers both casualties and those who served and returned, whose names are commemorated primarily on war memorials and rolls of honour in Worcestershire and some in surrounding counties. You can search the memorials here: http://www.rememberthefallen.co.uk/Memorials/ListMemorials
