Abbots Langley group will take you Back to the Front

 Published on: 22nd January 2018   |   By: Tim Green   |   Category: Uncategorized

More than one thousand men and women from Abbots Langley, Bedmond, Hunton Bridge, Langleybury and Leavesden who served in the First World War will be remembered in 2018.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War and a group of local historians will be organising a programme of events throughout the year to remember these men and women.

The Back to the Front 2018 Project is researching and recording their stories and is building a history of the area at the time of the Great War.

Roger Yapp, project leader, said the project will present its research in a number of ways including talks, exhibitions, school visits, walks, events and by publishing a book to remember and commemorate the lives and times of those from the villages that served during the Great War.

Mr Yapp said events and activities planned include a specially commissioned performance telling the stories of those who served in the Great War, a Great War Walk organised by local historians and a week long exhibition in Abbots Langley in November.

Many previously unrecorded names will be added to the local War Memorials and the culmination of the project will be the Remembrance Sunday Services on November 11
