Thank You

To mark the centenary of the end of WW1, the nation came together to say Thank You to the First World War generation, all who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

Thank You

In 2018 The Royal British Legion led the nation in saying Thank You to the First World War generation, all who served, sacrificed and changed our world. We saw activities big and small as people found their own way to recognise the incredible contributions of an entire generation. You can explore what people did and why below.

What was Thank You

100 years ago the guns fell silent on the world’s first truly global war. We believe it is time to think about all of those who lived through this tragic and remarkable time - and who put Britain on the path to becoming what it is today. It’s time to say Thank You for all they did for us.
