In Full . . .

More than names

Posted on April 20 2013 at 11:56:17

I am all too aware that when we have Remembrance in Barnt Green and a list of names of the fallen are called out, we can all too easily register them as just a name.

I am keen for the Scouts to learn more about the fallen from Barnt Green and Alvechurch and would be interested in hearing from anyone who can add some background information on the individuals – understanding how the loss impacted upon the family and friends etc.

I intend the Scouts to have an evening on November 4 to discuss this, and if possible invite some people who were affected by the loss.

This should make the service and reason for remembering more relevant to the Scouts, and show how we need to appreciate the impact conflict can have on families and friends.  

It would be great if you could work your magic on this within your next Village magazine so we can get in touch with anyone who could offer some more personal information on the fallen.
