To mark and to remember the role and contribution of the Army in the First World War

In 1914 tensions in South Eastern Europe would spill over into war; a conflict that would engulf the rest of Europe, then the world. This was a new kind of warfare, fought on an industrial scale by land, sea and air. The tactics of the past were rendered obsolete by new technology and the sheer scale of the combat. The British Army needed to swell its ranks, so the call went out to enlist. To aid the recruitment drive, men were permitted to serve alongside those they knew in Pals Battalions – friends, neighbours and workmates serving side by side.
