Today we mark 100 years since the entry of Britain into World War One. Many of our ancestors fought and many died, but we pay tribute to everyone touched by war, with the hope that our children and grandchildren will never again have to endure such hardship.

On Monday August 4th the BBC is marking the anniversary of the outbreak of World War One. Help us build a picture of national remembrance by sharing the pictures and stories of who and what you’ll be remembering on this national day of commemoration. #Remember http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-28584147

Today marks 100 years since Britain’s declaration of war on 4 August 1914, and the official start of the First World War Centenary. We're asking you to join in with the commemorations by sharing WHO you'll be remembering on #LivesOfWW1. Find someone on the site that interests you – maybe a family connection, someone from a local regiment, or simply someone that hasn’t been remembered yet – click to remember their Life Story, and share the link to their page with your friends and family using the #Remember and #WW1 hashtags. Find someone to remember on Lives of the First World War here: https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/search Pictured: Scene at Buckingham Palace on the outbreak of War, 1914 Image © IWM (Q 65496)
