Commemoration Dates

June 6th, 2014

Something else we have been asked is which notable dates will be commemorated. This can be very subjective depending upon where you might be and which regiment is more relevant to your area. We have been in touch with the Imperial War Museum and they have kindly told us that they believe that dates which are to be commemorated nationally are:

Entry of the British Empire to the War – 4 August 2014

The Gallipoli Landings – 25 April 2015

The Battle of Jutland – 31 May/1 June 2016

First day of the Battle of the Somme – 1 July 1916

Passchendaele (3rd Battle Ypres) – 31 July 2017

Armistice Day – 11 November 2018
