A Remembrance event to mark the British presence in the Aisne in 1914 is being organised as a joint project between the French and the British Governments as well as the Aisne Departement.

This event has already been included into the program of official remembrances of both countries on the occasion of the centenary, in cooperation with the French Centenary Mission. It is designed to pay a tribute to the soldiers who died in the war, regardless of their nationality. The ceremony will take place around the chapel of the Memorial of the Chemin des Dames and the British Monument of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment in Cerny-en-Laonnois.

Speeches by French and British representatives are scheduled for the commemoration; likewise the presence of a German delegation in the spirit of the centenary philosophy. A memorial stone to mark this event will be laid in the chapel of Cerny-en-Laonnois. In order to strengthen the meaning of this tribute, poppies will be laid as well.

A walk is also planned between the British Cemetery in Vendresse-Beaulne and the Loyal North Lancashire monument in Cerny-en-Laonnois (1,5 km), retracing the British attack of September 14th 1914.
