Remembrance in 2020

We’re doing everything we can to try and remember the men and women of Sevenoaks during the Great War. Although we are unable to offer our normal WW1 guided walks, there is lots of material available on our website, from photos of soldiers who served, to contemporary local postcards and images of ordinary Sevenoaks residents.

If you would like to book a talk for your school, group or society via zoom then please get in touch. Our next scheduled talk will be to the Sevenoaks Society in February 2021, when we will be talking about the war and its legacy.

Don’t forget that you can listen to our recent podcast here

Follow us on twitter @7oaksww1 and take a look at our #sevenoaksremembers hashtag which tells a different fact or story about the war every day until 11 November.

You can also buy copies of our book by clicking the link on the right of your screen. Packed full of local photos and stories of Sevenoaks during the war, it makes a great gift for anyone interested in history.

We are also supporting the Town Council’s plan to ‘Remember at Home’.

And as usual, please do let us know if you have a family story to share – we’d love to hear from you.

Most of all, stay safe.

Matt.
