Great War Centenary – Anniversary Year

It can hardly have escaped notice that this year sees the beginning of the Great War Centenary Commemorations. Beginning in August, the next four years will see the whole country remember the events that took a generation of young men overseas and many thousands to their deaths.

 

This year also sees a number of important Second World War 70th  anniversaries including the Battle of Kohima, Battle of Monte Cassino, Battle of Arnhem and of course D-Day in Normandy.

 

Llanishen Local History Society will be undertaking a commemorative in the village during the summer for both periods where you can view our research and hopefully contribute. Please keep following us on here and also visit our website for more information.

 

We Will Remember Them
