---

17 December 2014

The British Army Representative team will entertain the German Bundeswehr at Aldershot for a match to commemorate 100 years since the 1914 Christmas 'Game of Truce'.

The match has been arranged to commemorate the centenary of one of the most iconic moments of the First World War when soldiers from both sides put down their weapons and crossed into 'no-mans land' in Ypres, Belgium to share an impromptu ceasefire.

It will also follow a week of Remembrance activity that is occurring in December forming '“Football Remembers Week' between 5 and 14 December which is a joint collaboration between the FA Premier League, 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 one hundred years ago on the battlefields in Belgium.

When: Wednesday 17 December, kick off at 7.30pm

Where: Aldershot Town Football Club

Tickets: Adults £3, Concessions £1

if you're heterosexual - why not purchase a garrison girls calendar too?

if you're not heterosexual you can still support the cause by purchasing other goods from the shop.

proceeds to help post-traumatic stress in the armed forces.
