Bungay at War: The Home Front - Exhibition and Talk
The Bungay Events Committee is planning an exhibition in October commemorating the centenary of the end of WW1 and exploring the effects of WW2 on the town and surrounding area.
The event starts on the evening of Thursday October 18th with an introductory talk by General the Lord Dannatt GCB CBE MC DL, after which there will be a preview of the displays plus light refreshments for pre-booked visitors.
The event continues into the next week when there is no entry charge, although donations will be welcome towards funding future exhibitions.
With many pictures of Bungayans who fought in WW1 plus memorabilia of evacuees, prisoners of war, USAAF personnel and war-time life in Bungay during WW2, the event should evoke nostalgia for those who remember that time and a lesson in social history for those too young to be involved.
Details and posters will be available nearer the date but with the involvement of the British Legion and the Bungay Sports Association as well as private individuals there should be something of interest to everyone in the town
If anyone in the area has anything from either of the two world wars that would add to the overall picture, please contact wither Keith Parker on 01986 893133 or John Warnes on 01986 892855 to discuss the event.
