COULD you please thank the Men of Worth project's Andy Wade and Ian Walkden for organising the '100 years since the outbreak of war in 1914' event at the Town Hall Square in Keighley.

Keighley Mayor, Councillor Graham Mitchell, supported the organisers of the event, which was really information and well-received by the spectators.

The list of those who failed to come home, and the history and make-up of the Old Contemptibles standard (Keighley Branch), was excellent.

Well done to all.
