The centenary of the First World War captured the hearts of the nation. From community activities and war memorial restorations to large-scale national ceremonial events, this highly illustrated publication captures the variety and breadth of the events that took place to commemorate this significant milestone in our nation’s history.
As well as the large-scale events commemorating some of the major battles of the First World War, a diverse range of other activities also took place over the centenary. These included projects funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, activities organised by the Imperial War Museums’ Centenary Partnership, the ground-breaking artistic and cultural programme delivered by 14-18 NOW, and many other touching events from communities and groups around the UK. Many are showcased in this special limited edition publication, as a lasting reminder of ‘how we remembered’.
