About the commission:
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) was established in 1917 to ensure that men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died during the two world wars would always be remembered.
Today, we pay tribute to 1.7 million men and women who gave their lives in two world wars, by caring for their graves and memorials at more than 23,000 locations in 154 countries and territories.
For 100 years, the flame of remembrance has been a defining image for the CWGC. It forms part of the Commission’s official seal and symbolises our commitment to remembering those who died in the two world wars, today, tomorrow and forever.
Hold High The Torch is designed to build on that legacy.
We are asking people across the world to download the free Hold High The Torch app and use it on 11 November to create a global remembrance moment – a wave of light from Australia to the UK.
By taking part you are helping to remember all those who gave their today for our tomorrow.
