Grant to commemorate war dead in Brecon

4 August 2013 Last updated at 08:31 BST

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.
