Talk by Ian Petticrew - Inscribed to be honoured: Tring's War Memorial
21st November 2018
Ian Petticrew is a local historian and joint author of several books and research papers. “Inscribed to be honoured” were some of the words selected by the Parish Committee in May 1918 to appear at the foot of the old English cross that forms the central feature of Tring's War Memorial. He will explain how so many of the Town's young men came to be involved in the Great War; with the help of war diaries and regimental histories, will look into the circumstances surrounding the deaths of several of those who fell in action; and will conclude by relating the history of the War Memorial.
Visitors will be welcome on payment of £4 per meeting.
