Centenary Field of Thanks
On 11 November 1918, the guns fell silent across Europe as the Armistice was signed and the First World War was over. Over 1.1 million British and Commonwealth soldiers had made the ultimate sacrifice.
One hundred years later, we join together to say thank you to those who fought in battle, worked in the factories, planted the crops, nursed the injured and cared for the children.
Today is your opportunity to write a message and to have it included in the Centenary Field of Thanks at The National Memorial Arboretum, our nation's centre of Remembrance situated in Staffordshire on the edge of the National Forest. Whether you are remembering a loved one or want to honour the First World War generation, you can join us in making history.
We will place a weatherproof poppy with your message of thanks alongside thousands of others in the Centenary Field of Thanks from 8 August. Any messages submitted after 1st October will not be placed in the field for Remembrance Sunday.
