The Keep Military Museum is supporting the 'Every One Remembered' initiative launched by the Royal British Legion; a campaign to ensure that all 1.1 million Commonwealth Service men and women who fell during WW1 will be individually remembered.
In 2014, we at The Royal British Legion were inspired by the words of a school child visiting a war cemetery in Belgium, she wrote to us and said "I know that not everyone can be remembered as individuals, but I felt it was a shame for some people to have dozens of poppies and crosses while others had no one left to remember them."
Every One Remembered is that place. You can leave your own unique commemoration on the website to one of the fallen. You can remember a family member, someone from your local area or any of the many still left to be remembered.
The aim is to have all fallen remembered by Armistice Day. 656,000 sailors and soldiers are still to be remembered; these include some our own Dorsetshire and Devonshire men. 71,388 Riflemen are going unremembered. That’s over two thousand platoons of Chosen Men. Visit Everyone Remembered http://www.everyoneremembered.org/ as part of #ThankYou100.
