World War I Centenary Commemoration
2018 marked the centenary of the end of World War I. One hundred years after the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front, we still see connections either through family history, local heritage, or generally in the long-term impact on society and the world today
The War claimed the lives of over 16 million people across the globe and had a huge impact on those who experienced it. For the last four years, the Imperial War museum and other associated Non-profit organisations have been marking the impact of the First World War with a vibrant programme of global events and activities to ensure that those who lived, fought and served during the years 1914-1918 are not forgotten.
DOCA worked closely with the Town Council, Wiltshire Museum and a number of other organisations to create a programme of beautiful and contemporary events to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I.
