Armistice Day

Next Sunday at 11am the country will fall silent to think about those who have fought for freedom. Those who were, and continue to be, injured, killed or changed for ever.

Sadly we do not know how the village of Wing felt when the guns fell silent. The chronicler of the time was Revd Henry Tatham giving a month by month account of the everyday lives of the villagers, as well as those that were fighting, in the Parish Magazine. He died early in 1918 and never saw his dream of peace turn to reality, and no-one continued the magazine. His writing is a legacy for now and the future and over the next few months will be added here so that his voice can once more be heard.
