Poor is the nation that has no heroes.

Shameful is the one, that having heroes, forgets them!


During the two World Wars and more recent conflicts, over 1.7 million British and Commonwealth Servicemen/women  died in the service of their Country:  most of whom were aged between 17 and 24;  which gives even greater emphasis to the words of the Kohima, “For your tomorrow, we gave our today”.

During the two World Wars and more recent conflicts, over 1.7 million British and Commonwealth Servicemen/women  died in the service of their Country:  most of whom were aged between 17 and 24;  which gives even greater emphasis to the words of the Kohima: “For your tomorrow, we gave our today”.   Additionally, as a result of their sacrifice, the Globe  is circled with some 23,000 cemeteries and memorials, where they are rightfully commemorated.  

Through this site and the staging of the North Devon Annual Remembrance Concert, held in support of the Army Benevolent Fund and the Royal British Legion, we hope to keep the memory of their ultimate sacrifice alive.


The North Devon Remembers website was initially uploaded to the web in 2001.  At the time its main purpose was to promote the Annual North Devon Festival of Remembrance Concert.  Although that remains the case today the site has grown substantially and become a wide ranging education source; particularly for young secondary school Students, who may be studying the two World Wars or other wars in which the British/Commonwealth Armed Forces have played a leading role.  

eg:  The Falklands War in 1982 and the current Afghanistan Campaign.

Currently, the majority of students who contact us are from the English speaking Commonwealth countries.  

ie:  Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
