28 April 2015Spratton remembers
On the week-end of 25/26 April, Spratton commemorated all those from their community who had served in the Great War of 1914-1918. over 1000 people attended this event, very well organised by Spratton Local History Society, and much admired all the static and aerial displays (see the photograph of the tri-plane on the Home page).
The date chosen was exactly100 years since Spratton resident, Lt William Rhodes-Moorhouse RFC made his daring but fatal flight that earned him a Victoria Cross.
The Great War Society were centre-satge with their displays, there were old vehicles, motor-cycles and prams, a vintage aeroplane in the marquee with many other displays, and there were different bands playing. Several very informative talks took place.
