A year ago we were commemorating the centenary of the start of the First World War. In three years' time in 1918, we will be commemorating its end with the centenary of the signing of the armistice in Versailles on 11 November 1918 that officially ended that dreadful four year war.
This year as we approach Remembrance Sunday, we will be remembering key events in 1915 in the prosecution of the war which had quickly developed into a conflict between the Triple Entente of the United Kingdom, France and Russia and the central powers of Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy.
In the week leading up to Remembrance Sunday on 8th November and during the following week, there will be a display in the Haddenham Community Library that will provide information about the some of the battles, campaigns and developments during the First World War in 1915.
The Remembrance Sunday service at St Mary's Church Haddenham will start at 3 pm and will conclude with a wreath laying ceremony at the War Memorial at Church End at about 4 pm.
Later on in the month, on Wednesday 25th November at 8 pm in the Haddenham Community Junior School in Woodways, there will be a talk by Richard Moore, an ex-Royal Navy submarine commander, about the Gallipoli Campaign — "Gallipoli — forlorn failure but submarine folklore".
