Somme 100

Marking each day of the Somme

National commemorative events take place on 1 July and 18 November to mark the 100th anniversary of the start and end of the Battle of the Somme, which lasted 141 days in total. In addition to these major events, The Royal British Legion is hosting a daily service at the Thiepval Memorial in France to commemorate each day of the battle and invites interested groups and individuals to attend.

Fighting at the Battle of the Somme began on 1 July 1916 and lasted four and a half months. In total, 60 nations from across the British Empire and Europe were involved in the fighting across a 25 kilometre front. When the offensive finally came to a halt on 18 November 1916, the Battle of the Somme had claimed a million casualties; 430,000 from Commonwealth countries, with a third of this number killed.

An international Service of Remembrance, hosted by the French & UK Governments, took place at the Thiepval Monument on 1 July 2016.

From 2 July 2016, The Royal British Legion in partnership with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, will host a short, daily commemorative service at the Thiepval Memorial to remember the sacrifice of individuals and communities over the subsequent 139 days of the battle. A more formal Service of thanksgiving will mark the centenary of the final day of the battle on 18 November 2016.

Each daily service hosted by the Legion will take place at 11.50am (in France) and will provide the opportunity for Regimental Associations, communities and descendants linked to County or Pals' battalions from across the Commonwealth to participate in a short commemorative service.

Individual and tour operator groups visiting Thiepval are of course welcome to attend. Concurrent services are planned within the respective UK communities to allow those unable to travel to share in this very personal Act of Remembrance. UK communities will be linked to Thiepval by both representative groups and via digital streaming.

About thiepval

The Thiepval Memorial is the largest monument built by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and commemorates 72,085 Commonwealth soldiers who died on the Somme and have no known grave. Standing in grounds of 40 acres on a ridge overlooking the battlefield, beneath the dedication to the French and British Armies are inscribed the simple words: ‘The Missing of the Somme’.

The Thiepval Memorial is located on the D73, next to the village of Thiepval, off the main Bapaume to Albert road (D929) - Google map link.
