The Royal British Legion are recreating the 1928 pilgrimage to World War One battlefields, and The KP would love to help! A decade after World War 1 ended, war widows and veterans visited the infamous battlefields of Ypres and the Somme before marching to the Menin Gate in Ypres. Now, exactly 90 years later, The Royal British Legion and it’s thousands of members will recreate the Great Pilgrimage, with 2 representatives from every legion branch having been invited to attend a special tour to carry their Standards and lay a wreath in the parade on 8th August.
The Kilnwick Percy Resort is proud to help the Pocklington Branch of the Royal British Legion, who will be sending it’s Standard Bearer and Chairman along on the Great Pilgrimage, which will cost around £1000. To help aid and support the commemoration of a generation who served and defended their country, The KP is hosting two fantastic charity events to raise some funds for the Pocklington British Legion branch.
