World War 1 Commemoration
100 years ago, the First World War ended and a new world began. The Royal British Legion is leading the nation in saying Thank You to all who served, sacrificed and changed our world. They are asking communities to come together and reflect and remember the massive sacrifices made during the First World War and also to say Thank you to those who lived through this tragic time.
