It may be 99 years since Armistice Day paved the way for the end of World War One in 1918, but those who lost their lives must not be forgotten. Of the 25,000 Sunderland men who fought, one in ten never returned home.

 

Those who fought and fell should always be remembered.

More than 25,000 Sunderland men – miners, shipyard workers, glassblowers, bank staff and brewery workers among them – fought on the battlefields of Europe during the Great War.

One in ten was never to return home.

Hundreds more of our city’s brave servicemen and women lost their lives during World War Two, while others have made the ultimate sacrifice in more recent conflicts.

Those who fought and fell should never be forgotten. We should always remember their sacrifice.

Hundreds more Sunderland servicemen and women lost their lives during World War Two, while many others have made the ultimate sacrifice in more recent conflicts.
