On Friday 17th of June we held a short Memorial Service for Canadian Soldier Private George Burchell, who was killed near the Crooked Billet Roundabout in Iver Heath, in the last year of WW1.
It was held at the Totem Pole on the roundabout, an area rich with Canadian links, from the founders of the Hudson Bay Company and many more.
We hope to place a small memorial there before the Centenary of his death. Private Burchell was based in Black Park with the Canadian Forestry Corps and now lays to rest in St Margarets Church in Iver Heath. The local Scout group have been honouring him every year at Remembrance since 2007.
