2018 marks 100 years since the final year of the First World War.

The Royal British Legion has launched a campaign to invite the public to propose ways in which the centenary can be marked.

The charity is working with the Imperial War Museum which is hosting many events throughout 2018 to commemorate the occasion.

More than 1.2 million British and Commonwealth Armed forces personnel lost their lives.

In the lead up to the centenary of the Armistice that brought the war to an end, there will be a series of commemorations taking place.

A series of exhibitions at the Imperial War Museum will reflect on the impact the First World War had on shaping the modern world.

The programme of works and events aims to help people understand how the war forever changed the world we live in today.

A video inviting the British public to say Thank you to the First World War generation has been launched by the Royal British Legion.

The charity is calling on people to share ideas on how they would like to express their gratitude.

This year marks the culmination of a long programme of events by the charity to mark the centenary of the First World War – to ensure that those who sacrificed so much are not forgotten. 

The events taking place throughout 2018 will enable people to express their gratitude to those who made the ultimate sacrifice and to those who rebuilt a better nation from its darkest hour.
