Melbourn History Group
World War 1 Exhibition
Many history groups are commemorating the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War 1 and we are no exception. At the time of writing this article the team are researching not only the names on the village war memorial but also those who served and were fortunate to return. We are also looking at life in the village during the War and how people coped.
Over the weekend of 19/20th July the Group are staging an exhibition in All Saints’ Church. It will be open during Coffee Stop and also in the afternoon of the Saturday and again on Sunday after the Family Service and during the afternoon.
We have already collected much information and promises of medals and memorabilia from village people whose grandfathers, great grandfathers and other relatives served, but if anyone can help with memories and items we will be very pleased to hear from them.
