2014 marks 100 years since the start of the First World War, Wiltshire – with its military history – and huge sense of pride and support for the armed forces – will commemorate and remember its loss in the First World War.
Many local communities are working with schools, historians and researchers to find out more about the fallen soldiers in local areas and have creative and imaginative plans for how they will remember them, in their own appropriate way. From poppy fields to making crosses, to refurbishing war memorials – the 10,000 that lost their lives – will be commemorated and remembered.
There will be a county-wide commemorative event to bring communities across Wiltshire together to jointly remember in a fitting and dignified way. This will be held on 30 July 2014 at Tidworth military cemetery, more information will follow shortly.
