This is a TRUE STORY of what happened a century ago on Christmas Eve 1914 during the World War 1
On Christmas Eve, men from the British Expeditionary Force heard German troops in the trenches opposite singing hymns and patriotic songs. Messages were shouted between the trenches and, the following day – Christmas Day, an impromptu truce was arranged.
The dead were buried, trenches were repaired, and both sides met in no-man’s land to exchange gifts, take pictures and even play football.
“While the events we depict in our ad are fictional, we’ve tried to make the details as accurate as possible. Everything from the insignia on the men’s uniform to the depth of the trenches is based on historical fact. Even the dry biscuit the British soldier eats was baked to the authentic 1914 recipe.” – Say Sainsbury’s crew.
“In this short documentary we talk to the experts who advised us, interview the grandson of a soldier who was there, and hear first-hand accounts from both sides.”
