100 years since the armistice 11 November 2018

With the surrender of Germany in November 1918 fighting in the Great war ceased with the signing of the armistice.

The war eventually finished in June 1919 with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.

One hundred years on, this November will be an important part of commemorating the huge sacrifice made by so many people and Osmington will also be taking part.

If you are not sure how you can play a part in remembering,  why not take a look at the 'Every One Remembered' website run by the British Legion? It aims to remember every single person who played a part in the war and you can help by adding a virtual poppy, photographs, a story and a person message.

So many young men were killed in WW1 before they had families and so were remembered only as Great uncles who never came home. To save their stories for the future, please look back through your family albums, talk to older relatives and add as much information as you can.

You can also use this website to look up your relatives as well; why not give it a go...

See Wilf Burden commemoration on the site.
