As part of the FA Football Remembers Project St Day AFC asked all visiting teams to Vogue Park, pose for a picture prior to each of their repective games over the last couple of weekends to mark the Christmas Day Truce of 1914 when Allied and German troops laid down their weapons and played impromptu fooball matches across the Western Front.

 

On 25 December 1914, soldiers from both sides put down their weapons and crossed into ‘no man’s land’ to share in an impromptu ceasefire.

The FA and Cornwall FA asked clubs to commemorate the centenary of one of the most iconic moments of the First World War - the 1914 Christmas Truce.  As part of a week of remembrance activity in December 2014. 'Football Remembers Week' will take place from 5-14 December.

A joint collaboration between The FA, the Premier League, the Football League and the   British Council, the aim is to engage football fans and players at every level about what took place on Christmas Day 1 hundred years ago on the battlefields in Belgium.  The site shall act as a  moment of record of   football in 2014, a century on from the First World War, and will be preserved for future generations. HRH The Duke of Cambridge, President of The FA, said: “It promises to be a powerful way to engage and educate young people about such an important moment in our history. We all grew up with the story of soldiers from both sides putting down their arms on Christmas Day, and it remains wholly relevant today as a message of hope over adversity, even in the bleakest of times.”
