Additional Info Says John Callcut; 'Every year, on Remembrance Sunday, the thirty two names on the Newdigate War Memorial are respectfully read out. When Mabel Whiffen died in 2004 the last village connection with the First World war was severed so I was determined that these brave men should not be forgotten. I set out to discover their background .... where did they live? what did they do? what did they look like and what did they think?... and then set their story into context with events happening in the war.' Adds John ; 'The study took me to research offices, libraries, museums and the homes of descendants throughout the country. These men gave their lives so that we can live in a free society ..... they should not be forgotten'.
Tickets £8
