University of Surrey helps to say ‘Thank You’ to the First World War generation

In November 2018 the University of Surrey in partnership with the Royal British Legion commemorated the centenary of the end of World War One and officially launched this year’s Poppy Appeal in Surrey. 100 staff and students came together by the University of Surrey campus lake to recognise the legacy that generation left us as part of the Royal British Legion’s #ThankYou100 campaign.
