From 5 August 2014 to 11 November 2014, a major artistic installation entitled 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' will see the Tower of London's famous dry moat filled with over 800,000 ceramic poppies to create a powerful visual commemoration for the First World War Centenary.


June 2014

Turning the Pages ceremony is held four times a year (Mar, Jun, Sept and Nov) at the Aldershot Garrison Church attended by QARANC personnel from local units along with QARANC Association members.

Sgt Letso Rapoo is a health care assistant in the QARANC and works as a ward manager at Headley Court, a 32-bed rehabilitation centre for injured members of the British Armed Forces. The ward initiative, which has been running since June 2013, is led by health care assistants and was set up by Letso. The initiative has won him several awards including the recent Health Practitioner category from the Nursing Standard Awards that took place this month.

2014 marks both the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, and the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy. It is a year to remember these historic sacrifices, and also a fitting opportunity to explore the battlefields, museums and commemorative events that are taking place throughout the year.
