    We Remember the Fallen from all British conflicts since 1945

    Since the end of World War Two, there has only been one year, during 1968, that no British serviceman was killed in action. This a statistic that can sometimes be overlooked during Remembrance time when our thoughts can focus on those lost during the two world wars.
