Exhibition: Morcott & the Great War

On Remembrance Sunday, 9 November, between 10.30am and 2.30pm, Anthony Martin’s exhibition on Morcott & the Great War will be staged for a second time, in the Village Hall.

This is a great opportunity if you missed the first exhibition in September.  Everyone who attended then agreed it was fascinating, touching and well-researched.  It not only documents the fate of the Morcott men who lost their lives during WW1, but also gives you a glimpse of life in Morcott in the first 20 years of the 20th century.  As Anthony has continued his research in the last couple of months, additional information will be included in this exhibition.  Highly recommended!

Tea & coffee will be available in return for a donation to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

    Yes: Cecil Drake is indeed named on the war memorial, and tomorrow, on Remembrance Sunday 2014, his nephew will lay a wreath to mark its renovation. If you can get here, I am sure you’d find the exhibition fascinating.
