Cadets from One (Minden) Company clean Gallipoli Gardens in preparation for the Gallipoli Commemoration.
Five cadets braved the inclement weather on Saturday 27 April to help clear the Gallipoli Gardens at the Fusilier Museum. Gallipoli Gardens is the memorial space outside the Fusilier Museum in Bury Town Centre dedicated to the memory of Fusiliers who have proudly served across the globe. It is dominated by the Lutyens Memorial – unveiled by Lieutenant General Sir Henry de Beauvoir De Lisle on 25th April 1922, the seventh anniversary of the Gallipoli Landings.
As a busy thoroughfare the Gardens have sadly been subjected to generalised littering – not a fitting thing for a place of memorial and contemplation.
Supervised by SI Michael Shepherd the five cadets were organised into working parties and collected several bags of litter and rubbish. Following the completion of the litter picking a tour of the Fusilier Museum was given with the cadets enjoying the many displays.
