Everton Football Club - WW1 & WW2 Remembrance



WW1 Talk and Everton Liver Building Offices Tour - Forces Veterans and British Legion

Before the Remembrance Matchday of November 2018, Forces veterans involved with Everton in the Community and the British Legion were invited by Everton FC to their Liver Building home, for breakfast and to enjoy a tour of the Everton base, before listening to a talk on Everton During WW1 given by Mike Royden of EFC Heritage Society.

All concerned were then whisked off to Goodison, where they took part in the pitch ceremony immediately before kick-off.
