As most people will no doubt be very well aware, this weekend sees the centenary of the end of the First World War.

During the course of the last few years, the Rayment Society has been carefully researching stories regarding those people surnamed Rayment (and variants) who served in the armed forces at the time of this terrible conflict.   Although the Society has recently made a number of these stories available in the Military section of its www.rayment.info website, there are undoubtedly many more that could be added if some information were to be provided by their relatives.

Consequently we are now appealing for any such information, no matter how small and no matter whether the person concerned was actually killed during the war or managed to survive it.   Please help us to ensure that their efforts are never forgotten.

(Note: The sounds that you can hear in the background have been taken from a recording which started a minute or so before the guns fell silent at 11am on Saturday 11th November 1911)
