Make the Commemorations of First World War a Patriotic National Event

Over 900,000 British & Commonwealth soldiers died to fight for freedom of every person in this Country which affected every family in every village and town. A very heavy price was paid. We call on the Government to show due respect for these war heros and their families and mark 2014 as a PATRIOTIC event and not be given the low key suggested by some Ministers for worry of causing offence to Germany. It is an insult to their memory to try rewrite history. There should be a 1914 Patriotic Bank Holiday as a mark of the event so that every member of every family can be a part of the commemorations not just the selected few who will attend Westminster Abbey.
