Due to the ongoing uncertainty around Covid-19, and due to the French and Belgian Governments’ advice on public spaces and institutions, we have taken the decision to close The CWGC Experience in Beaurains and The CWGC Information Centre in Ieper for the time being.

The Last Post Ceremony, the daily act of remembrance at the Menin Gate Memorial, will go ahead each evening but the CWGC and the Last Post Association are asking the public not to attend due to the unprecedented spread of the coronavirus.

Please check the CWGC website for regular updates.

Noor Inayat-Khan: A Woman of Conspicuous Courage

Digital Exhibition Now Open

Visit the Exhibition
Armed with just a false passport and a pistol, Noor Inayat-Khan became the first woman radio operator to be sent to Nazi–occupied France during the Second World War.
Now 75 years on from her death the CWGC’s charity, the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation (CWGF), is keeping her story alive through a new interactive exhibition at the Runnymede Memorial.

Find out what it takes to be an undercover agent and put your code-breaking skills to the test, use state-of-the-art technology in our totally unique and interactive exhibition.

With the help of the Girlguiding Association – the CWGC’s charity, the CWGF, is telling the story of Noor – we want to inspire the next generation of History Makers.
