WW1 Centenary

Great War Centenary 2014-2018 website by Paul Reed

New WW1 Centenary Website

8 Comments

Well here it is – a new WW1 Centenary website to partner my existing site – Great War Photos. I had started to post some news and current articles on there rather than just WW1 images and felt it was getting a bit cross-polluted, so this site will be here to post news about development on the WW1 battlefields; not just in Belgium and France but much further afield. There will be articles on WW1 museums, WW1 battlefield sites and photos from visits to sites along the Old Front Line.

I will also be posting details of upcoming centenary events and special centenary Battlefield Tours I am planning with Leger Battlefields.

Many people are homing in on the centenary period for all sorts of reasons, but my own, which I know I share with many friends on Twitter, is to spread information and understanding.

The years 2014-2018 will be a period to reflect and remember; not just the dead, but the forgotten survivors as well, and not just the British Tommy; but men from all sides and nations. We need to end the commemoration in 2018 with a feeling that something lasting has been achieved. Here is to that day.
