World War I in Haslingfield and Cambridge

This month’s posting is in the form of a request. On November 11th 2014 the Village Society, in collaboration with the Little Theatre, is presenting an evening about World War I and its impact on the local community. The first part will look at the experiences of those soldiers recruited locally. The second will focus more on the resilience and humour demonstrated during such a dreadful time, and will present songs, readings and newspaper reports of the time.

If you have any family stories going back to World War I, whether related to service at the front or at home, I would be delighted to hear from you. I can be contacted at and on 01223 514849.

Best wishes for the New Year.

John Beresford.
