First World War Centenary: A Great War story from Southfields Primary School in Peterborough

Earlier this year, ITV News Anglia launched its First World War Centenary School Report and asked children from across the region to tell us a Great War story from their area.

They hold a special ceremony to remember Sergeant Jimmy each year and want the animals who played their part in the war to get special recognition.
