Lest we forget

[ January 20, 2016   //   ]

Colchester-based logistics firm and Palletways member SLi has delivered a World War I memorial from Essex to Monchy-le-Preux in northern France.

The memorial marks the 100th anniversary of the battle in which 700 soldiers of the 1st and 9th Service Battalions of the Essex Regiment and of the Essex Yeomanry lost their lives in April 1917.

Richard Triolo, managing director at SLi, said: “Memorials are an essential part of remembrance and remind us of the sacrifice of so many in the fight for freedom. We’re very proud of our contribution which will ensure this part of history is always remembered.”
