The Western Front Association (WFA) was formed with the aim of furthering interest in The Great War of 1914-1918. We also aim to perpetuate the memory, courage and comradeship of all those on all sides who served their countries in France and Flanders and their own countries during The Great War.
Established in 1980 by noted military historian John Giles, the WFA has grown over the years to some 6,000 members worldwide. Please see the Branches Information section for details of your nearest WFA branch.
Through the work of the Association we do not seek to justify or glorify war. We are not a re-enactment society, nor are we commercially motivated. We are entirely non-political. The object of the Association is to educate the public in the history of The Great War with particular reference to the Western Front.
Applications for membership are warmly welcomed from anyone of a like mind.
