Aims of our Devon Remembers Project


Our project is called ‘Devon Remembers’, and through it we aim to:

  • Recognise and pay tribute to the sacrifice and contribution that the people of Devon made during and after World War One
  • Bring communities together to discover stories about their past and forge new relationships for the future
  • Create a legacy collection of images, objects and documents contributing to the national archive
  • Help the younger generation to find out about and understand the experiences of the conflict and the impact that it had on their community
  • Assist communities to help themselves by signposting resources and funding opportunities available to them
