As part of the Menin 1000 Ride to Remember 2014, the team visited CWGC Faubourg d’Amiens Cemetery in Arras. A stunning cemetery and memorial, this site has at least 39 Pudsey & Farsley lads that are buried or remembered. Each grave of our men was visited, and the list of fallen read out before a wreath was laid on behalf the community. The sacrifice of our young men during the Battle of Arras will not be forgotten.
The only man from from Pudsey named on the Canadian Memorial of Vimy Ridge is Private John Thomas Price, 19, of the 38th Canadian Battalion. Son of Winifred Price, 18 Chapel Town, & the late John Thomas Price. Also named on St. Josephs Font Plaque & Pudsey Cenotaph.
