The Western Front Association – Meetings



The Western Front Association Meetings reflect the area and community in which we live, and the men the families and the regiments of all those who served  and the many who never came back.

Some of the work is done by members with a lifetimes interest, some is spontaneous, sparked by the distant childhood memory of an almost forgotten loved one or the finding of an old letter or medal ; others are given by professional or semi-professional researchers .

Whatever the motivation, they are rich in detail and personal anecdotes.
