St George's Teacher Makes Headlines with Historical Performance
Posted 06/11/2018 17:20

Wilfred Owen, a WW1 poet and soldier, was killed on the banks of the Sambre-Oise Canal just seven days before the Armistice. On Sunday, November 4th, a ceremony to mark the centenary of his death was held in Ors, France just near the canal and again at the cemetery where his body was laid to rest. St George's music teacher Mrs Ni had the great honour of being selected to perform on Wilfred Owen's own bugle in its first public performance since the poet's death 100 years ago.
