FIND out more about some of the west Dorset servicemen who made the ultimate sacrifice in the First World War.

A free exhibition is being held at the Bridport LSI on Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3 called The Whitchurch Men Who Went to War.

The display commemorates the men from Whitchurch Canonicorum, near Bridport, who fought in the First World War.

The war memorial in Whitchurch Canonicorum has been an integral part of the village since its inauguration in 1920. At that time, 17 local men’s names were engraved on it who gave their lives in WW1, with another one being commemorated on a plaque inside the church.

This two day exhibition consists of a series of display boards depicting each serviceman's life story. The research used census information and other archives as well as war records from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, Forces War Records and First World War documents.

This exhibition, brought to the LSI by Sylvia Creed Castle, ancient monuments liaison officer for Char Valley Parish Council, celebrates and remembers the lives of these brave men who gave their lives 100 years ago.
