World War One Ceremony - 20 September 2014
The men and women who served the country during World War One have been honoured at a special ceremony to mark 100 years since the start of the Great War.

The First World War centenary event, which took place on Saturday September 20 at Hammersmith Town Hall, also featured the unveiling of a poppy garden and plaque by Cllr Mercy Umeh, Mayor of Hammersmith & Fulham (H&F), in nearby Furnivall Gardens.

Organised by Fulham resident Ray Champion, the day-long event included talks about World War One and the local people who helped the war effort, musical performances from The Royal Yeomanry Band, readings and an opportunity for guests to bring along medals and memorabilia from World War One and share their own stories.
