Glass Remembered …. First World War

First World War Centenary

The 4th of August 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the day Britain entered one of the costliest conflicts in history – the First World War ( WW1) – with fighting continuing until the 11th of November 1918, Armistice Day.

You can read about the soldiers from Glass, and glimpse the impact that WW1 had upon them, their families and friends, by visiting our “Glass Remembered ….” web pages here.

Lights Out!

The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.

Sir Edward Grey, Foreign Secretary, uttered these words on the eve of Britain officially entered the First World War.

Exactly 100 years later the Royal British Legion are inviting millions of individuals, households and companies – in other words YOU!  – to join together in a national moment of reflection.

The Royal British Legion is encouraging everyone in the UK to turn off their lights between 10pm and 11pm on 4 August 2014 – leaving only a single light bulb for this symbolic act of reflection and hope. Please, join together, and create a unique national moment for the United Kingdom and The Royal British Legion.

    I would be very interested to know information about any of the names on the list and where they lived in Glass.

    Well done, whoever decided to put this on our website! Phyllis Goodall and I are doing a little filming project about the war memorial so this is very useful to us.
