Lest we Forget


Lest we Forget

As we enter 2021 I considered taking this page down as on the face of it it is well out of date. Yet a celebration such as this should not be subject to a time scale. And as all the external links still work and the websites they link to are still running I have left it here and simply named it "Lest we Forget"  

With Remembrance being led by the Legion since 1921, the commemoration of the end of the First World War in 2018 is going to be one of the most memorable and significant moments in the history of the Legion and the entire nation.

During the last 100 days of the centenary, from 8th August to 11th November we want to encourage everyone to thank those who fought, those who returned and those who worked to rebuild the country for future generations and achieved incredible advancements in many areas including medicine, the arts and everyday life.

We have already established partnerships with other organisations to help us deliver this project and we are in conversations with more partners. Through our collaboration with Never Such Innocence an organisation focused on young people’s education about the First World War, we launched a competition to inspire schools and pupils to compose a poem, a song or other work of art to say Thank You and share a message of Remembrance and hope.

Please visit the Thank You webpage. To find out more, Watch our Film on YouTube, and look out for activity on social media. We will keep you up to date with the latest news about the Thank You movement in the coming months.
