On Active Service: Commemorating the Armistice Centenary through poetry
This week, communities across the UK will come together to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice of 11 November 1918 which brought an end to the First World War.
To mark the week of remembrance and celebration, The Reader has curated a special collection of poems from its 2014 anthology On Active Service 1914-1918 which is available as a free digital download.
Including poems from Wilfred Owen, Margaret Postgate Cole and Issac Rosenberg, the collection captures the words of those who experienced the First World War either as civilians looking on or as soldiers in the thick of it.
We'll be sharing poems from the anthology with Shared Reading group members and volunteers across the UK and invite you to read it as part of your own moments of remembrance this week.
