THEN AND NOW
2019

HALLATON IN THE GREAT WAR ~ TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED
2016

To commemorate the centenary of the Great War it was decided to write the biographies of all those connected with Hallaton who served in that conflict.
Such a diversity of experiences, from writing these stories, of so many different theatres of the war that it was decided to mount this major exhibition to show some of the less well known but equally fascinating aspects of that terrible conflict, which engulfed every village and town in the land.
