Leadgate Community History Club

The Research Project

Following on from WW1, projects to honour the fallen of WW2 started in 2020 as that was the 75th Anniversary of the end of that conflict with VE Day 8th May and VJ Day 15th August.

Andy Plant started the research, compiling the names, finding their Leadgate social history & their military service. Once complete he then opened a Facebook Page (Leadgate Remembers WW2) and put his research up on Facebook by way of a one year calender with each of the fallen remembered on the day they died regardless of the year.

Once again Janet Lavery set about her project of Remembrance Square for each of the fallen.

This sketch was drawn by Bernard Nixon of Leadgate as he watched the 75th Anniversery on TV. Bernard's wonderful sketch has lots of symbolism in it. Each time you look at it you can see something else.
