Stir­ling MP Stephen Kerr has given his sup­port to the Com­mon­wealth War Graves Foun­da­tion, a char­ity re­spon­si­ble for main­tain­ing Com­mon­wealth war graves across the UK.

The char­ity is re­spon­si­ble for the up­keep of 22 graves in the Stir­ling­shire area.

Re­ceiv­ing both pri­vate and pub­lic fund­ing, the group helps to pre­serve the mem­o­ries of those who died serv­ing the United King­dom and the Com­mon­wealth dur­ing both world wars.

Mr Kerr said: “We’ve re­cently seen in the Ob­server stories from peo­ple who have found out about rel­a­tives us­ing the in­for­ma­tion avail­able from this or­gan­i­sa­tion. The work of the foun­da­tion helps to keep these mem­o­ries alive and de­serves our full sup­port.

Mr Kerr has also joined the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion as an as­so­ci­ate mem­ber, a po­si­tion open to any­one who wishes to sup­port the or­gan­i­sa­tion and its work.

He added: “I would also en­cour­age peo­ple to con­sider join­ing the Bri­tish Le­gion and help their in­valu­able work as well.”
