Commemoration of the Somme

I've been distracted by what's going on in the country at the moment, but what happened 100 years ago is important, too. There will be a service of commemoration at St Mary's tonight, 1st July, at 7pm. They will be remembering the Battle of the Somme and the Battle of Jutland.
I see on the British Legion's Facebook page that Second Lt. H Grant, from Hay, died in action on the first day of the Battle of the Somme.
