Rochester RSL memorial poppy tiles have been popular with residents looking to mark the graves of veterans in the Rochester cemetery.August 8, 2014 3:29am
Rochester RSL has created a precedent in sponsoring memorial poppy tiles for attachment to graves of World War I veterans in the Rochester cemetery.
Contact has been made by other sub-branches seeking to honour their local veterans in the same way.
Community response has also been encouraging according to John Glover, who is leading the project.
Anyone wishing to take part in laying the tile with the RSL on a family grave can contact Mr Glover to arrange a suitable time.
All veteran graves in Rochester will be marked as soon as the graves have been identified in conjunction with Rochester Cemetery Trust.
The memorials were not restricted to those who enlisted in or from Rochester during the war.
It is hoped to have all tiles placed by the end of August.
