Supporting the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) by offering discounted travel this week.

Condor Ferries is supporting the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) by offering discounted travel to its team going to install war graves in Guernsey and Jersey this week.

The team, who sailed from Poole to the Channel Islands aboard Condor Liberation, will be erecting a new headstone for Private Walter Henry Marquis at Foulon Cemetery in Guernsey. Walter died after receiving a gunshot wound to his head in 1921 during a military operation in Ireland. He is now commemorated by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission ensures that 1.7 million people who died in the two world wars will never be forgotten by caring for war graves and memorials at 23,000 locations, in more than 154 countries. 

Alicia Andrews, Executive Director - Commercial at Condor Ferries, commented: “We are pleased to be able to support the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in its work by assisting its team in getting to the locations they need to visit.  Particularly at this time of year, with Armistice Day approaching, we feel that remembering those that fell in the two world wars is an important tradition to maintain and the CWGC does a fantastic job of ensuring that cemeteries and memorials across the world are cared for with dignity.” 

Samantha Daynes, the Commonwealth War Graves Commissions Media Manager for the UK, said: “The CWGC is very grateful to Condor Ferries for its continued support. As you can imagine, maintaining, replacing and erecting new headstones across the UK and abroad can become costly, so having discounted fares on transport helps us immensely. It helps to ensure we can continue our work of commemorating those who gave their lives during both world wars.”
