Befitting Display @ Whittlesey Museum

After several months of hard work by the Museum Volunteers, they have put together a small room full of World War One artefacts.
The ‘Poppy Wreath’ for example contains 244 Poppy Petals – One for each of those who died either in action or from wounds they received during WW1 – Each one with the name of the deceased. Much research has been carried out – and the 244 include those from Coastes, Eastrea, Pondersbridge and Turves.
