TADS World War I exhibition

Tadley and District History Society (TADS) are commemorating the centenary of the start of World War 1 with an exhibition at Tadley Community Centre on Saturday 27 September 2014.

The main objective of the exhibition is to provide a personal profile on each of the 31 men listed on the Tadley War Memorial. Of the 31 men named, regrettably, one continues to remain a mystery. Private A Rampton has been identified via his medal index card as being Alfred Rampton but to date his family and Tadley connections still elude us. While the lives and achievements of the other 30 men will be exhibited, sadly Alfred remains an enigma.

The second main display, ‘Contemporary life in Tadley’, seeks to illustrate what life was like in Tadley at the outbreak of World War I. Other displays will include, ‘The History of Tadley War memorial’, ‘World War I Theatres of War’ and a ‘National and Local Time-line’. The exhibition will also include displays by pupils from local schools and organizations.

Admission is free and light refreshments will be available.
