WWI

THE HISTORY GROUP NEEDS YOUR HELP

War Memorial top

Our WWI group are busy researching the people of Milton Abbas for our exhibition 5 – 7 Oct 2018.

Do you, or anyone you know, have ancestors who lived in Milton Abbas around the time of the First World War? If so we would love to hear from you.

The History Group are holding a major exhibition from Friday 5th October to Sunday 7th October. The exhibition will trace the lives of the men connected to Milton Abbas who went to war, through their recruitment into the different services, training and their war experiences. The exhibition will also focus on what was happening for those who were left behind and the aftermath of the war.

We have already carried out a great deal of research but in order to make the exhibition more relevant and personal we would love to have any family stories and anecdotes you may know of; also photographs of people and artefacts that you may have and would be willing to share with us for the exhibition. We will happily share any information we have found on your ancestors.

Please CLICK HERE where you will find a list detailing all the men connected to Milton Abbas, that we have found, who went to war. Please contact us here.

We very much look forward to hearing from you.
