Armistice commemorated

(11 11 2018 ... Kettering remembers)

November saw the centenary of the end of the Great War ... Armistice Day, the 11th day of the 11th month fell on Remembrance Day ... and there was a good and special turn out at the War Memorial outside the Art Gallery

Just over a week later, Phil gave the monthly talk at the Gallery on the theme of 'Armistice! 100 years on' and ga ve a brief account of what prompted the end of hostilities and how we have marked that (both then and now) ...

Members of the audience had been encouraged to bring in family objects special to them, and time was set aside at the end of the talk to enable people to come up and share a few thoughts related to their objects.

The Friends of the Art Gallery and Museum greatly appreciated people taking the time to support this, and thank them for bringing things along.
