WFA news about WFA news

WFA news about WFA news

This part of the website will now be confined to news of the WFA and our branches, etc. It will also continue to carry WFA Branch and national events.

We will add news generally about the Great War via the WFA's First World War Centenary website, which is more suited to rapid response breaking news items during the Centenary.

If you have any news you wish to announce, please use the form on the First World War Centenary website.

We will also add external (non-WFA) events via the Centenary website also.

If you have an event you wish to draw attention to, please self-submit the details. Please read the guidelines first.

Many thanks


David Henderson
