There will be a public meeting to gauge interest in staging an event to pay tribute to the many Manxmen who fought in the First World War, 100 years after it started.

The proposal would be to hold a re-enactment of young conscripts parading from the site of the former Old Drill Hall in Peel Road to King Edward Pier on the evening of Monday, August 4.

Anyone interested to should go to the meeting at 7.30pm on Wednesday, February 12, at the Manx Legion Club, Market Hill, Douglas.

The event would be part of Island of Culture 2014.
