We had the privilege to provide a marquee for the American Memorial Day service held locally on 23rd of May this year at Brookwood American Military Cemetery & Memorial.
This annual event commemorates all American service men and women who lost their lives in wars whilst defending their country or that of their allies.
2018 marked the 150th anniversary of the occasion, originally known as the Decoration Day. in 1960 it was formally established by federal law to be know as 'Memorial Day'.
Today services are held in May throughout America and at American cemeteries across the world to honour all those who lost their lives. Graves are often marked with small American flags to represent each life lost.
