Bermondsey & Rotherhithe Remembrance Sunday in West Lane

In 1915, the 22nd battalion set off to take part in the Great War in  which hundreds of Bermondsey men fought on the Western Front and in the Salonika Campaign in the Balkans. By the end of the war, 970 Bermondsey men fighting in the regiment had died. Their names are inscribed on the memorial located at West Lane. This Sunday there will be a ceremony to show tributes to those who died in battle.
