World War One Centenary Commemorations: Now that 2014 is here, there has been an increase in public enquiries about World War One Centenary Commemoration Events. The Legion will be playing an active role in centenary activity – and a formal position paper, outlining our key themes and messages, holding statement and guidance for participating in Centenary events – is currently being developed and due for internal circulation by early April. At this point, we will also be in a position to provide further information on how to get involved in other national Centenary programmes with a local footprint.
For handling public enquiries in the meantime, a First World War Centenary section is now available on the Legion’s website. It will be updated on a regular basis as new developments come on stream. http://www.britishlegion.org.uk/remembrance/ww1-centenary
