The Great War

This is Mark Bamford (Sleaford Museum) with John Dale, who with his sister, Linda Bayley, have carried out an incredible amount of research, essentially from the Sleaford Gazette, into the lives of the Alvey Boys, many of whom would have actually stood on the spot where this photo was taken and who went on to fight and tragically die in WWI. They are commemorated on the Project 72 memorial at the front of the school. John presented us with the record of the Project 72 Fallen which includes, personal letters to and from the front, as well as letters of condolences from the Officers the men were serving under in France.
