Take up our quarrel with the foe: 
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high. 
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

In Memory Of Our WWI Veterans This Memorial Day Weekend

An item from the World War One Centennial Commission.

National WWI Memorial View

We’re getting close to putting a shovel in the ground for the National World War I Memorial in Washington, D.C.

We started at $50 Million and we only have $13 Million to raise in order to get started this fall. That is tremendous progress, so I know that together we can do it.

Thanks for your friendship, interest and support with gifts, guidance, and commitment as we seek to remember those who, as our Chairman is fond of saying, “left their homes to fight in a war they didn’t start, in a land most had never visited, in the name of peace and liberty for people they didn’t know”.

Our Doughboys did it then.

You can help get this done now.

If you have given before, please consider another gift, large or small, in Memory of the Doughboys, on this special weekend when we remember those who sacrificed. Every dime goes to our Doughboys’ Memorial.

And if you have not donated to the National WWI Memorial in Washington – now is a really important time for you to join in the effort.

Whether you can give a gift right now or not, thank you for being part of the community that is remembering the significance and the sacrifice of our men, women and nation in WWI.

Best,

Help us remember D-Day

From the There But Not There organization.


D-Day 75: Walk In Their Bootprints

On 28th April 1944, we launched our 2019 D-Day 75 campaign on Slapton Sands in Devon to commemorate the 749 men who were killed during a rehearsal for D-Day.

We are rapidly approaching the anniversary of D-Day itself on Thursday 6th June – a day that turned the tide of the war and saw the start of the Battle of Normandy, which would rage until the liberation of Paris on 25th August 1944.

This summer, we want to see as many communities as possible coming together to remember the 22,763 British and Commonwealth servicemen and women who died 75 years ago.

You can purchase our stickers so that your community can literally walk in their Bootprints.

Our Bootprint plaques each carry the name of someone who died during this battle. The profits we raise support projects that help today’s veterans get back into employment.

The Invictus UK Trials
We are incredibly proud to be working alongside the Invictus UK Trials in Sheffield this July.

Never Such Innocence have launched an exclusive competition for 9-18 year olds to celebrate the Trials and we are proud to be partnering with them to support this.

To inspire your entries, we have created a Wartime Sheffield info pack. We will be releasing a more detailed pack in time for the Trials themselves in July. You will be able to explore the city, find out about its wartime history and our Tommies will be marking the locations of historic points of interest.

Keep an eye on our website and social media (links below), where we will be sharing the location of our Tommies nearer the time.
