Celebrating service men and women of Cumbria

AS part of our Bringing Communities Together and to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One, in 2018, we are reaching out to Copeland’s service, ex-service personnel and their families.

We want to here the stories and memories of their time with the Armed Forces or other service.

So if you have a family tale about how your ancestor served in the world war, whether it was on the home front or abroad, or if you completed your national service and have stories about where you were based we would like to hear from you.

To kick things off we have, right, and image of the late Ronald Rogers (second from the right) who completed his National Service, in Germany.

Did you complete National Service? Perhaps you knew Ronald, or even served with him?

We’d love to know your story. Get in touch and help us bring the community together.

To get in contact either e-mail rachael@egremont2day.co.uk or write to us at Lowes Court Gallery, 12 Main Street, Egremont, CA22 2DW.
