Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “This November marks the centenary of the end of the First World War. The impact that the First World War had on our town was enormous. Huge numbers of Watford men joined the call to arms. The town also pulled together around the war effort.

 

“That’s why I’m really proud that we’re able to remember our town’s role in the Great War and the people from Watford who made the ultimate sacrifice.”
