Brookwood Military Cemetery open days this weekend


While not too many blog readers will be able to attend I was interested to see, via an billboard at Woking station captured from my seat on the train by iPhone camera, that Brookwood Military Cemetery is having a "Day to Remember" when there are Open Days on Friday September 7th and Saturday September 8th, 2012.

From http://www.cwgc.org/news-events/events/brookwoodopenday.aspx:
Brookwood Military Cemetery is the largest Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery in the UK. The Open Days will offer activities for all, including Tours and Practical Demonstrations; Commission Gardeners' Question Time; Renovation Work in progress; Free Admission and Refreshments.

Brookwood Military Cemetery, GU24 0BL. The main entrance to the cemetery is on the A324 from the village of Pirbright. There is a direct train service from London Waterloo to Brookwood Station which has an entrance to the cemetery.

A most interesting idea.
