Every Man Remembered: a unique opportunity to honour a Serviceman or woman who fell during the First World War
Poppyscotland, together with The Royal British Legion, is proud to be working alongside the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to keep the memory of the Fallen alive for future generations.
Our aim is for each and every one of the 1,117,077 Commonwealth Service men who laid down their lives while serving in the First World War to be remembered by those alive today.
You can visit the Every Man Remembered, incorporating Every Women Remembered, website to look up a specific person, such as a family member, or by searching to find an individual based on name or location. Information on the person you are looking to commemorate can be also be viewed. You’ll also be able to find more information by searching the Commonwealth War Graves website: www.cwgc.org.
Every Man Remembered: for those who serve today
Poppyscotland (formerly The Earl Haig Fund Scotland) was founded in 1921, in the aftermath of the First World War. Today the Armed Forces community can still call on us for help with almost every aspect of daily life.
We spent £3.1 million last year on support services in Scotland for those who need us. And in the coming years, demand for all our welfare services is set to continue to grow as all those men and women who come home from conflicts face new battles – whether that’s adjusting to life after losing a limb, starting a new career after leaving the Forces, or coping with post-traumatic stress. Just as veterans did after the First World War, many of them will continue to need us for the rest of their lives.
If you’d like to take part in this unique act of Remembrance, together we can make sure that every Commonwealth man and woman who died during the First World War is remembered. You will also have the opportunity to make a donation to support our work with the Armed Forces community or can do so by visiting our donation page.
