This issue is a continuation of the Royal Mint's five-year programme of commemoration of the World War One Centenary, and is a respectful way to remember the camaraderie of those men and the unity and pride of the communities they volunteered to defend.

In 1914, tensions in South East Europe would spill over into war; a conflict that would engulf the rest of Europe, then the world. This was a new kind of warfare, fought on an industrial scale by land, sea and air. The tactics of the past were rendered obsolete by new technology and the sheer scale of the combat. The British Army needed to swell its ranks, so the call went out to enlist. To aid the recruitment drive, men were permitted to serve alongside those they knew in Pals Battalions - friends, neighbors and workmates serving side by side.
