There will be displays of memorabilia focussing on how people in Whitchurch and Ganarew lived at home and in some cases, died during WW1. Extracts from the Ross Gazette 1918 and 19 show how people managed with the hardships of the time and what little public entertainment there was. You will see prices for everyday goods and clothing and what was available to treat their aches and pains and other maladies of the period.

We are hoping that the Gazette offices will be reproducing and publishing a centenary edition of our newspaper for armistice day 1919.

At home during WW1.
