2014 marks the centenary of the First World War and there have been a series of events across the UK and around the world to commemorate the lives of those who lived, fought and died during this time. While often overlooked, African and Caribbean men and women from the Commonwealth played a key role in the First World War, sacrificing their lives to stand alongside the ‘mother country’ Great Britain.

World War One - Centenary

World War One has also been portrayed as a predominately European war between the four superpowers at the time and very little is known about the contribution made by the many of the commonwealth countries particularly the West Indies, Africa and Asia to the war. The contribution made by these countries has always been downplayed by the media and history books have all, but omitted the contribution made by black servicemen.
