There is a ‘Visiting Exhibition’at the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum, Neatishead put together by Neatishead, Irstead and Barton Turf Community Heritage Group. It commemorates the Battle of the Somme which took place from 1st July to 18th November 1916 and has come to symbolise the enormous losses and dreadful conditions of the First World War.
Almost every community across the United Kingdom was deeply affected by the loss of men who had gone to fight.
A summary and accompanying maps explain the plans beforehand and the course of the battle.
Read about the lives of the 12 men from the villages who paid the ultimate sacrifice together with the Norfolk Regiments’ involvement in the Battle.
The exhibition will be there all of August.
This is part of a WW1 project undertaken by the group, details of which can be found at www.greatwar.nibchg.org.uk
