My Department is supporting a wide programme of first world war centenary commemoration projects that will support all communities who wish to commemorate this important period. These include a commemorative paving stone campaign for Victoria Cross recipients, a joint project with the Department for Education to send schoolchildren to the battlefields, and a series of 50 lectures on the commonwealth nations' contribution to the war, being facilitated by the Curzon Institute.
