I found some more photographs yesterday, from the Derbyshire Times, of men on the War Memorial. it certainly brings the names on the memorial to life when you see the faces of the men.

Horace Aaron, Herbert Pollindine, Alexander Carlile and Edwin Hewkin. Some of the pictures aren’t very clear but they are now 100 years old.

All of the pictures I have found so far can be seen at

WW1 Memorial exhibition

There is now a small display remembering the men Of Old Whittington who died in WW1 in the foyer of the Swanwick Memorial Hall. The display will be available to view when Old Whittington Library is open. The opening hours are Tuesday 10-1 then 2-6pm, Thursday 10-1 then 2-6pm and Saturday 10-1. I would like to thank MacIntyre for letting us set up the display in the foyer. I have posted some photos but please feel free to pop in and have a look. If you have any information you would like to share then please contact me or if you prefer give Chris the librarian your details and I can contact you directly.
