90th anniversary of Passchendale
Ministers have agreed to pay £5,000 towards the overall costs of commemorative events for the 90th anniversary of the Third Battle of Ypres, also known as Passchendale, to be held in Zonnebeke in Belgium in August.
Deputy Communities Minister Des McNulty told MSPs:
"This Executive believes that what happened at Passchendaele deserves to be remembered and appropriately commemorated, and all the more so because of the significant role played by Scottish soldiers..."
Passchendaele or Passchendale? The former appears to be the correct form although the latter is well used. But you surely cannot use both versions in the same release.
Update (2 February, 1.30 pm):
The press release has now been adjusted. Not surprisingly, no acknowledgement.
