In April 2016 Joseph Ash Galvanizing published an article about the Passchendaele Salute 2017 – an event that will be held near Lille, France later this year, to commemorate the centenary of the end of the Battle of Passchendaele during World War One. (You can read the full article here.)
As time draws near – with only six months to go – we thought we’d highlight the event again by asking you to visit the Passchendaele Salute 2017 website.
“The Passchendaele Salute 2017, under the patronage of Ms Janice Charette, High Commissioner for Canada, will take place on the morning of 10 November 2017 at Fort de Seclin, near Lille in France. A Drumhead service of remembrance and a Salute of 100 rounds to commemorate the centenary of the end of the Battle of Passchendaele and honour the gunners.”
We’re pleased to say that John Slough of London (a client of Joseph Ash Galvanizing who refurbishes antique guns), will carry some of the guns that will be used in the Salute from the UK to France, on some of our Joseph Ash Galvanizing lorries.
The Passchendaele Salute 2017 will also raise money for a worthy charity called Combat Stress that provides free specialist and clinical treatment and support to ex-servicemen and women.
