1914-1918OurWarDeadDo you want to know more about those whose names are on the War Memorials of our four villages?

Are you related to one of them?

On Wednesday 18th November (note not Thursday 19th as shown in poster) Richard Osgood, the MOD Archaeologist based at Westdown Camp in Tilshead (some of you may have seen him on television, on Time Team and other programmes) will be giving a talk on Thursday, 18th November in Shrewton Primary School about the First World War casualties from all four villages, Chitterne, Orcheston, Shrewton and Tilshead, who are mentioned on our War Memorials.

The talk is free, and is sponsored by the Salisbury Plain Benefice. A collection will be made for Walking With the Wounded, who recently passed through two of our villages on their walk the length of Britain.

It is hoped that youngsters who are relations of the war dead that they will be able to come along as well. The talk is aimed at adults but Richard Osgood hopes there may be some young relatives, and will ensure his talk covers them as well.

See poster for full details.
