100 years ago, August 4th 1914, Britain declared war with Germany. The world war started in 1914 28th of June. A man called Franz Ferdinand had been shot by a man, but we don’t know his name. The world war 1 was an epic fight. All over the world people had to lose their lives for their countries and families.
Mr Burt and Mrs Flavell’s grandad’s fought in WW1. The Victoria Cross was awarded to all of the soldiers who fought in the war. The soldiers fought in Gallipoli, in Turkey. The New Zealand and Australian troops were called the ANZACS, that is why we wear the poppy.
