Grant to commemorate war dead in Brecon
A project exploring the lives of more than one hundred soldiers from Brecon killed during World War I has won a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
The Brecon Remembers project will use the £5,500 to learn more about the men listed on the town's war memorial.
The HLF said it was the first grant awarded in Wales through its First World War: then and now programme.
WWI centenary commemorations are due to begin around the UK on 4 August, 2014.
Project leader Steve Morris told BBC Wales they had discovered another 30 war veterans from the town they hadn't previously known about.
