Turn off your lights and illuminate your home with a single candle as a mark of respect on Monday August 4, between 10pm and 11pm. This signifies the date Britain entered the Great War 100 years ago.

Lights Out has been inspired by wartime Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey, who famously remarked: “The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our life-time”.

To support the campaign, centenary candles are now available to purchase across all Marks & Spencer stores and online here, with all profits going to the Legion in support of the charity’s vital work.
