A remembrance service was held at Wolverley CE Secondary School on Monday, 13th November 2017. The service has become an important and special tradition at Wolverley. Students and staff joined ex-service men, during break time, to pay their respects to those who have fought in war, and to remember those who lost their lives. This year marks 100 years since the Battle of Passchendaele. The battle began on 31 July 1917 constant shelling had churned the clay soil and smashed the drainage systems. Within a few days, the heaviest rain for 30 years had turned the soil into a quagmire, producing thick mud that clogged up rifles and immobilised tanks. It eventually became so deep that men and horses drowned in it. The service remembered the men who fought bravely during this battle and for all others killed or wounded in any previous war.
