TOP MILITARY CHARITY ANNOUNCES ‘THE LONG WALK HOME’ TO COMMEMORATE 100 YEARS SINCE THE GREAT WAR
UK’s top military housing charity Haig Housing Trust has announced that 100 Veterans will walk 100 miles from Ypres to the Cenotaph to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.
The march by Veterans from across the Haig Housing community has been called ‘THE LONG WALK HOME’ and the journey will finish on Remembrance Sunday at the Cenotaph.

The Long Walk Home has been planned as a mark of respect to those who died in the Great War and will raise funds for the charity. It is also an important milestone for Haig Housing as it was launched in memory of Earl Haig soon after the Great War.
