Trentham NWR group vow never to forget

Trentham NWR group vow never to forget

The NWR Trentham group recently investigated the lives of 17 soldiers named on their local war memorial. The group have produced this moving film and vowed never to forget these local boys and men.

 

The memorial was a gift to Trentham by the women of the district. Project co-ordinator Marilyn Vigurs, aged 66, of Trentham, said: “When we started the project we just had a list of 17 names. Now we know a lot more about the men... In a strange sort of way, we feel as though we know them."

A moving Remembrance Day service was the culmination of months of research carried out by Trentham NWR and a large crowd gathered at the war memorial to pay their respects to these 17 men.

The service was led by Reverend Everton McLeod. He said: “It was a privilege and an honour to be part of this special service. The fact that we now know so much more about these 17 men makes it even more special.”

What a marvellous thing to do in remembrance. I wonder whether anyone else in the village
Is related to any of them now. Last Sunday I turned up at the Remembrance service in a nearby village where my family came from and granddad's cousin is on the memorial. All the names were read out by a member of the community which is now mainly affluent people from other parts of the country. The churchwarden thanked me for coming and asked me to take part in a service they will have next summer to commemorate the end of WW2. I will probably read a lesson which my late godfather read in 1945...
Lest we forget.
