The First World War, often referred to as The Great War, from 4th August 1914 to the 11th November 1918, is remembered for the countless thousands of men and women who lost their lives, perhaps needlessly, for a cause often beyond their comprehension. Amongst those who died were many of all ranks and creeds from our own communities, who bravely answered the call. Some fell on the Western Front whilst many others were lost in sea battles such as the Battle of Jutland. These were our own people and we should not forget them. It is only right and fitting that they should be in our thoughts and prayers this weekend as we mark the centenary of Armistice Day which marked the cessation of the war “at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” in 1918.
