Staff and students from the Skipton Academy, along with the Skipton Royal British Legion Band, will be re-creating the "send-off' that the first recruits from Settle received 100 years to the day they left for the Great War.
Dressed in wartime clothing they will gather at Settle train station and recreate the moments the local lads were waved off to war by their families.
The re-enactment event will be attended by local resident Dennis Maunders, 90, whose father Robbert Henry Maunders, from Settle was one of the first Craven men to enlist.
The timetable of events for the day:
- 15.30 Recruits march down the platform of historic Settle train station led by Legion Band playing fanfare
- 15.35 The 'rousing' speech delivered to recruits by local recruiting campaigner Harry Gilbert Tunstill
- 15.40 Recruits drill on the platform
- 15.45 Legion band lead recruits in the National Anthem
Organisers from a campaign group called 'Sack Pardew' have staged a large-scale protest in and around St James's Park ahead of their match with Hull City.
The group say they will be distributing 30,000 leaflets and 100 banners from 10 pubs in Newcastle city centre. Tigers Manager Steve Bruce is one of the favourites to replace Pardew if he is sacked. It is the first time the two side's have met since Pardew head-butted Hull City's David Meyler last season.
10 years since his death, we look back at Brian Clough's legendary interview with former Calendar presenter Austin Mitchell after he was sacked as head coach of Leeds United.
