In remembrance

Today the team started working with local schools to remember those men from the First World War who trained on the Plain and who died, being buried in local cemeteries. School children (in Amesbury and Durrington today) undertook internet searches to find out about the names and lives of those men and to remember them. The children will then add their thoughts to a poppy cross to be used on 11th November, and will use their new knowledge in other curricular studies. Lots of fascinating stories about those names from 1914-18, artillerymen, veterinary corps, and infantry. Not forgotten
