MIDDLEWICH was represented at the Great Pilgrimage 90 by two members of the Royal British Legion.

Andy McCormack and Ken Kingston attended the event which marked 90 years since the original expedition in 1928, which saw 11,000 World War One veterans and war widows visit the battlefields of the Somme in France and Ypres in Belgium, a decade after the conflict ended.

Speaking to The Guardian back in June, Ken Kingston, said: “Great Pilgrimage 90 is a unique opportunity for the Legion community to come together and bear our Standards along the same route in Ypres taken 90 years earlier by the veterans and widows of the First World War.”

More than 2,200 other Legion representatives and dignitaries, including Civic and military guests from the UK, Commonwealth and Northern Europe attended the event.
