AN exhibition remembering a village's fallen will be displayed to a new audience.

The exhibition entitled '100 Years On- The Whitchurch Men who went to war' is set to be shown again, this time at the newly refurbished Bridport Learning and Scientific Institute (LSI), where entry will be free.

The original exhibition was on display at Whitchurch Village Hall in March this year, and commemorated the 17 fallen servicemen whose names are engraves on the war memorial, and an additional one who is commemorated on a plaque inside the church.

The history behind the exhibition was researched by Sylvia Creed-Castle for the Char Valley Parish Council, and Sylvia linked many of the men to people who are still living in west Dorset, with descendants invited to view the displays.

This has been illustrated with family trees and photographs spanning at least 120 years, and in most cases, it was single men who enlisted to fight for England, but a few were husbands who left behind widows and small children.

The men came from different walks of life, agriculture being the main occupation to fight in Europe and Asia.

Two men had emigrated but returned to fight for England.

Display boards depicting the early life and war records will include those of Private Colin Wood, Lance Corporal Ernest Peach, Privates Ralph and Cecil Barnes, Lieutenant Commander Edgar Cookson and many others.

The exhibition will be shown at Bridport LSI on Friday, November 2 from 10am until 5pm and Saturday, November 3 from 10am until 3pm.
