Wood Norton Remembers

We Will Remember: Exhibition to remember Alfred William Ducker, who fell at the Seige of Kut.

We’ve been contacted by the project team who are undertaking a Heritage Project in the Norfolk village of Wood Norton.

This team is looking into the lives of the 44 people commemorated on the village memorial, all bar one who appear to relate to WW1. The team are concentrating mostly on the twelve men (10 soldiers and 2 sailors) who lost their lives during the First World War and impressively have managed to establish  the dates of death for all these men, as well as who they served with and where they fell.

The research is resulting in regular exhibitions and the team’s next event will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Alfred William Ducker who fell at the Siege of Kut.  (Our regular Mesopotamian researcher will write more about this later in April – ed.)

We have been working on the names on our War Memorial, and information can be found on our village website at http://woodnorton.norfolkparishes.gov.uk/war-memorial/

The team’s exhibition sounds fascinating, and full details can be found in the poster below:
