World War 1 Commemoration
We would like to pass our congratulations to the R&M WWI Committee who organised the many events in R&M marking the 100th Anniversary of the end of the ‘Great War’. We have placed alongside a scrolling record of the parade on 11th November. A wealth of historical information about ‘Radyr Casualties’ during the Great War has been compiled by local resident, David Warren. This is displayed on posters in Windsor Gardens, but you can also read it here.
