Product Description

Product Description

The Prime Minister, comedians, soap stars, Hollywood actors and the cast of War Horse, are brought together in an extraordinary album of spoken word and music, marking the most haunting moments of World War One.

The unprecedented line-up, which includes Eastenders star Danny Dyer, Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean, Cold Feet star John Thomson, comedian Sarah Millican and broadcasters James Naughtie and Stephen Fry, will forge new links to the valour of the most courageous heroes of World War One.

Following months of painstaking research, The Royal British Legion and the Victoria Cross Trust also tracked down descendants of a group of Victoria Cross recipients, who join the celebrity line-up for a unique collection of recordings compiled to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of the War in 1914.

The album also features vintage music from the time, recorded by The Central Band of The Royal British Legion who recreated the sounds and atmosphere of classic tracks such as It s a long way to Tipperary, Keep the home fires burning and Pack up your troubles. Also featured is a bugle that was played on the battlefields of Belgium and France.

The album is a truly unique and painstaking collaboration according to Royal British Legion Director of Fundraising Charles Byrne."We are very grateful to the Victoria Cross Trust for their great dedication in helping source descendants of those whose selfless courage was recognised with the VC.

Perfect purchase to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the First World War. The CD contains everything required to honour the sacrifice made by so many in the name of freedom. An excellent purchase and a very worthy addition to our overall collection of military CDs.

Fantastic CD so moving and I hope that a lot of this will be used at this year's Remembrance service. Sean Bean started off with Passing Bells and was read with so much passion.
