Soldiers of Crowle & Ealand in the Great War
Paul Connell (of Forces War Records)

Location: Crowle Community Resource Centre (above the Library – use the rear entrance)


The talk will look at the story behind the names of the men listed (and in several cases omitted) on the Crowle and Ealand War Memorials; their lives before enlisting and the actions they were involved in, not only how they died. It will also look briefly at some of the other stories of Crowle men in wartime and how the War affected life in general for people in the local area.
We hope to be able to pull together an exhibition based about the Soldiers of Crowle & Ealand and would be grateful for any additional information that Crowle residents may have. Please contact angus@townley.com
