Did You Know?
In 1918, the War Graves Commission began to search the Gallipoli battlefields in an effort to locate and identify bodies belonging to the Commonwealth. A Norfolk cap badge was found buried amongst some of the bodies, which led Reverend Charles Pierrepoint Edwards to conduct a more detailed examination of the area where the cap badge was found. In all, one hundred twenty-two of the one hundred eighty bodies found were identified by their Norfolk badges and flashes. See more

Captain Frank Beck
Men, have Sandringham in your hearts. We fight today so we can return there and take up our work again with dignity and respect. I will stand by your side and face what you have to face.
