Condor Ferries will take part in the commemoration of the events that triggered the First World War 100 years ago.

Condor Ferries commemorates the First World War centenary

In accordance with a request of the United Nations, Condor Ferries, which has regular sailings to the Channel Islands and France, has instructed its fleet to join ships around the world in marking the occasion by flying their national ensign at half mast on Saturday 28th June 2014. As the day draws to a close and in remembrance of the first shot fired 100 years ago, Condor Ferries ships in port will also sound a prolonged blast on their horns at 1800 BST.

These commemorations, which have been requested by UNESCO, to mark the anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne,  and his wife on  28th June 1914 in Sarajevo, an important incident which contributed to the outbreak of war later that year.

Alicia Andrews, Sales & Marketing Director at Condor Ferries, commented: “We are proud and humbled to join this international maritime act of mourning and commemoration one hundred years after the outbreak of the First World War.”

Editors’ Note
