Marlow and The Great War - Finale Event

Marlow Remembers WW1 archivesWe all know that WW1 ended in 1918. Actually that was the Armistice. Officially the war ended between Britain and Germany at the signing of the Peace Treaty in 1919.

 

Over the past 5 years members of the Marlow Remembers WW1 Association have been researching the war and its effect on Marlow both with the loss of service personnel and the trauma on families plus the overall effect on the Home Front, eg, businesses, schooling and shortages.

 

On Saturday 8 June 2019 from 1100 to 1600 the Association in conjunction with the Marlow Museum and Marlow Society will be holding

 

Marlow and The Great War - Finale Event

at the All Saints Church Hall on the Causeway, Marlow.

Entry will be FREE.

 

The stories of WW1 battles, lists of those who did not return and details of the research carried out will be on display.

 

As the event title suggests, this will be the conclusion of hours of work by the dedicated team of volunteers who recorded the local men either buried abroad or in the area. In the latter cases graveside commemorations have been held as well as planting of crosses and wreath laying on Remembrance Day.

 

Occasional guided walks, usually as part of the Chilterns Walking Festival, are still held to the WW1 Training Trenches at Marlow Common. For details ask at the Marlow Museum at Court Garden SL 7 2AE open Wednesday and weekend afternoons.
