The Royal British Legion has teamed up with Marks & Spencer to encourage the nation to take part in ‘LIGHTS OUT’, a campaign to remember the soldiers who fell during the First World War.

The Legion is inviting the nation to take part in a moment of reflection, by switching off their lights and illuminating their homes with a single candle between the hour of 10pm and 11pn on 4 August, signifying the date Britain entered the Great War 100 years ago and the time the news was broadcast. Volunteers from the Legion are also organising hundreds of local remembrance events taking place across the country to mark the date.

‘LIGHTS OUT’ has been inspired by wartime Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey, who famously remarked: “The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our life-time”.

To support the campaign, centenary candles are now available to purchase across all Marks & Spencer stores and online here, with all profits going to the Legion in support of the charity’s vital work.
