The Prime Minister said "remembrance must be the hallmark of our commemorations" as he announced plans for the centenary of WWI.
I am determined that Government will play a leading role with national events and new support for educational initiatives.
These will include national commemorations for the first day of conflict on the 4th August 2014 and for the first day of the Somme on 1st July 2016.
And together with partners like The Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the custodians of our Remembrance, The Royal British Legion, there will be further events to commemorate Jutland, Gallipoli and Passchendaele, all leading towards Armistice Day in 2018.
