WW1 project Tilney All Saints Remembers

 

Tilney All Saints School and the History Group have been working on a research project since October 2017 to find the stories of the men and women of WW1, including those who gave their lives, and those who returned, and what the village was like in those war years.

 
In this hundredth anniversary of the end of WW1, we also hope to raise awareness of today’s servicemen and their support needs on returning home.

 


 

FEEDBACK / REVIEWS

 

Thank you for sending the book here. It’s on its way to Nigel [in Canada].

It’s amazing what you have achieved. Many congratulations to you and the rest of the group…

To June and the TAS History Group

Congratulations!

A brief note to say well done on the WW1 exhibition! I appreciate the research that you undertook on the fallen soldiers. It’s also been the impetus to pull together my notes on Vic’s life story so thank you for that..

Your latest book arrived yesterday and I have started to read it.  It is very good.  I studied some of WW1 at uni but the subject was delivered in a very detached manner.  It was easy to take a step back and be very distanced emotionally from what I was learning.  It was just facts.  This book makes part of it real.  I love how you incorporate the lives of the soldier's families with their military life.  The ages at which  many of these young men lost their lives is heart breaking.  The devastation to their families.  And what a great idea to include the school - keep the memory of the war alive but more personal and meaningful.  I hope you are very proud, June, as you have provided a real and relevant  memorial for these men, their families and communities.  I know I don't come from Tilney but from visiting there and reading your other books, I feel a little part of it.

Village historians and local school children have joined forces for a new project to commemorate the men of their community who fell in the First World War.

The project between the Tilney All Saints History Group and the village’s primary school will culminate with an exhibition and memorial service next spring.

And organisers have appealed for anyone who can help with the work to get in touch.
