Centenary to mark arrival of wounded WW1 soldiers begins

A WW1 centenary to remember the sick and wounded prisoners of war who were transferred to Switzerland for internment is being held this weekend.

The event will also commemorate the first contingent of 700 British soldiers, who arrived in Château d'Oex on 30th May 1916.
