All Our Yesterdays: Today When The Guns Fall Silent

To mark the 100th anniversary of Armistice, the British Army has released a video titled, 'Today When The Guns Fall Silent'

The short film tells the story of a British soldier whose family members have served in conflicts over the last 100 years. The different conflicts and eras are represented by the seamless change in uniform worn by the soldier. The changes in uniform on the soldier also demonstrates the evolution of the British Army over the last 100 years. 

Throughout the video a poem is recited which delivers the narrative for this emotive film.

The video was filmed at Brookwood Military Cemetery, near Pirbright. Brookwood is owned and run by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC); it was established as the First World War ended, and then extended for the burial of Second World War service personnel. Those buried there represent all branches of service, and all six of the CWGC’s member governments: Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom
