Service of Dedication of the Welsh Memorial in Flanders – Programme
Pilckem Ridge, Langemark, Belgium.
3pm, 16 August 2014
The dedication and unveiling ceremony is the culmination of several years campaigning and fundraising by the Welsh Memorial in Flanders Campaign Group for a lasting memorial to the services of Welsh men and women during the First World War.
The memorial is comprised of a cromlech made of four Welsh Blue Pennant stones from the Craig yr Hesg quarry near Pontypridd and surmounted by a red bronze dragon, designed by Welsh artist Lee Odishow.
The Welsh Government has supported the Campaign Group’s efforts from the outset and has agreed to underwrite a shortfall of up to £25,000 in the funding raised for the memorial by the Campaign Group in Wales and Flanders.
