“They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old,

Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn,

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We shall remember them.”

At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month 1918 the guns of the First World War fell silent. This year, on the 100th anniversary, of the end of hostilities, we have the opportunity to remember and honour all those who lost life or limb in that dreadful and bloody conflict.

The losses were almost beyond modern day’s comprehension.

  • • 10,000,000 soldiers
  • • 7,000,000 civilians
  • • 7,700,000 missing – presumed dead
  • • 2,000,000 deaths from disease near the front
  • • 21,000,000 estimated total deaths
  • • 21,000,000 injured
  • • Total casualties of over 40,000,000
  • • Serbia lost an estimated 25% of the country’s entire population
  • • The Ottoman Empire lost close to 15% of its population
  • • Over 1,250,000 deaths at the Battle of the Somme
  • • On just one day the 1st July there were 57,470 British casualties including 19,240 fatalities.
