    Today, 26th May 2018 was the 100th anniversary of the death of Private Harry Ward, Tank Corps. Harry is buried in Poole Cemetery and the Bournemouth & Poole Branch, Royal Tank Regiment Association were not prepared to let this significant day pass unnoticed. We cleaned his headstone, laid a wreath and a Glass Name Block. We said the regimental Prayer and played the last post. The glass block is likely to be stolen at some point? but not today! harryw7.jpg harryw8.jpg harryw4.jpg harryw10.jpg harryw11.jpg
