The Western Front Association (WFA)

Founded in 1980. The Western Front Association (WFA) was founded by the late John Giles and friends as an association to maintain an interest in the First World War (1914-1918). The WFA aims to perpetuate the memory, courage and comradeship of all those who participated in the war from all sides, and on all Fronts: on land, at sea, in the air and on the Home Front. The WFA is a non-political organisation. It does not seek to glorify war. To find out more about the WFA and how you can join visit the website:
