THE nation will today unite in its commemoration of Britain’s entry into the First World War.

Events are being held across the county to mark the centenary, as we remember the fallen who sacrificed their lives for ours.

Whether at work or at home, everyone should take a moment to reflect on those brave men who a century ago left their homes not knowing if they would ever return.

From attending a memorial service to simply turning your lights out for an hour, we hope as many as possible do something to pay their respects.

The remarkable tales of heroism and bravery, highlighted in our coverage, show why we should never forget them.
