The date is August 1914. The British Expeditionary Force is in France and You're in the Royal Field Artillery. You're riding alongside one of the battery's gun limbers on its way to the assigned position on the east side of Mons, Belgium. This begins your journey into the Hell they called World War One.

Western Front Centennial News

As August draws ever closer I'll post information on activities happening around the world - especially those in the UK and Europe. I belong to the Western Front Association and the following post is from their current newsletter. I'll also include excerpts from my grandfather's war journal on the appropriate day it actually took place - starting August 5th, 2014.

The WFA's commemoration of  the deployment of the British Expeditionary Force in August 1914 - programme

The movement of the British Expeditionary Force to France in August 1914 was a momentous event in British history and the WFA aims to commemorate the deployment both in the UK and in France.

You can now download the programme for this important series of commemorations. Please check back on the website regularly as, with a complex set of arrangements and timetables, there may be slight variations in the published  programme right up until the day itself and through the deployment commemorations from Sunday, 10 to Wednesday 13 August 2014.

The Great Promise
