Remembering the 'Thankful Villages' of WWI

3 posts in this topic

A pair of motorcyclists have set off to visit every village in Britain where its soldiers all survived World War I.

There are just 51 so-called 'Thankful Villages' that witnessed their servicemen all return safely.

Three of the villages are in Wales, which is where the nine-day tour began on Saturday at Llanfihangel y Creuddyn near Aberystwyth.

The 'Thankful Villages Run' hopes to raise £51,000 for the Royal British Legion.

Considering the absolute mindless carnage of that particular war it is amazing that there were that many villages which could boast such returns!
