“Every intelligent person in the world felt that disaster was impending and knew no way of adverting it” -H.G. Wells

…Words that echoed so many years ago still stand true to this day. 2018 will mark the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War One. The “Great War” as it is known, was slaughter on an industrial scale of which the world had never seen before. The British Commonwealth and its allies fought Germany and the Central Powers in a massive struggle mostly along what was called the Western Front. Tens of millions died and were wounded in the four brutal years of constant fighting.

Canada answered the call to arms and through great courage and bravery placed itself on the world's stage as a major effective fighting force earning many victories for its allies. Sadly, over sixty thousand of our men died and would not return home to their families. Many more would carry the physical and emotional scars for the remainder of their lives. It was to be “The War to End All Wars”.

LONDON - DUNKIRK - FLANDERS - VIMY - SOMME
In remembrance of all the war dead we walk through these portals into the battlefields of Passchendaele, the city of Ypres, Sanctuary Wood and other battlefields such as the “Wipers” Salient.

On this journey with us, you will be spending November 11th in London at the Cenotaph at Whitehall. Since the early 1990s the Western Front Association (WFA) has held an annual Ceremony of Remembrance at the Cenotaph memorial on Whitehall at 11.00 hours on 11 November. Wreaths are laid by Her Majesty The Queen, members of the Royal Family, senior military leaders, politicians and representatives of the Commonwealth. Following the formal ceremony and wreath-laying The Royal British Legion co-ordinates a march past the Cenotaph, which includes members of ex-Service organizations and civilian organizations which have played their part on the Home Front in wartime.

You will also be visiting the newly dedicated memorial at Vimy Ridge as well as the Somme, Thiepval Memorial and Beaumont Hamel

Join us this Remembrance Day, for the 100th Remembrance of World War I, and involve yourself in truly global congregation to share a Remembrance like no other, and help us commemorate those who have suffered for our peace.
