The Western Front Association's Armistice Commemoration at the Cenotaph, London

WELCOME TO OUR SITE

The Western Front Association was formed in 1980 to maintain interest in the period 1914-1918 and to perpetuate the memory, courage and comradeship of those on all sides who served their countries in France and Flanders and their own countries during the Great War. It does not seek to glorify war and is non-political. For a modest annual subscription, our members receive a wide range of benefits. In particular, belonging to the WFA provides you with the opportunity of meeting like-minded people to learn, share, explore and exchange information and knowledge in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. You will also receive our regular, high-quality publications in total six times a year.
