The Western Front Association

I recently joined The Western Front Association (WFA).

The Western Front Association

It was formed in 1980 with the aim of furthering interest in The Great War and to perpetuate the memory, courage and comradeship of all those who served their countries during the war.

The Association does not seek to justify or glorify war, nor is it a re-enactment society.

They are not commercially motivated and are entirely non-political, focucssing on educating the public in the history of The Great War, with particular reference to the Western Front (from the Belgium coast down to the Swiss border).

The WFA has grown over the years to some 6,000 members worldwide, with three branches covering Lancashire. Further details can be found at

I am also a member of the British Association for Local History (BALH) and the national Community Archives and Heritage Group.
