Project 72

We are hoping to complete the Project 72 memorial plaque for an official opening before we break up for the summer holidays. Interestingly, we received this information today. I will add it to the Project 72 'blog' on the school website

 

I have just read about the work you have been doing in the last 12 months or on the Alvey School Project 72.

 

One of the soldiers, George Veale, was the cousin of my Grandmother.

 

As part of my family history investigations, I have discovered information about his parents, who owned a cake shop/ café in Sleaford, his early life as a school boy and a mechanic at Holland Brothers. He married the daughter of an Ancaster Publican.

 

In the Army he served with the RASC with one of the Tunnelling Regiments and it was while serving with them that he was killed in 1916.

 

He has a grave in the village of Suzanne in the Department of the Somme.
