The 100 year anniversary of the start of the First World War will be remembered in Sittingbourne and Sheppey tonight.
Mr Henderson said: “What struck me most about the war graves was the way in which they stood out. Many of the graves in our cemeteries have become run down and unkempt because the families of the dead have themselves passed away and there is no longer anybody to maintain their graves.
"Not so the war graves. They were clean, tidy and well maintained.
“It is a credit to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, and the governments that fund it, that the grave of somebody who was killed in the First World War, one hundred years ago, is still being maintained properly.
“I think it is fantastic that the sacrifice so many of our young men and women made, so long ago, continues to be recognized in this way.”
