ARMISTICE 100

A Clerkenwell exhibition remembers what life was like “on Islington’s home front” during the First World War – it’s an essential experience ahead of Sunday’s centenary.

Children and veterans were among hundreds of people who marched together down Upper Street as part of celebrations marking the centenary of the Armistice yesterday.

Islington’s George William Sleet was a career soldier who had seen the army as a way out of a life scarred by childhood neglect.

When the sound of rockets was heard across north London on November 11, 1918, some feared for their lives.

The Royal British Legion has been helping veterans and their families for almost 100 years.
