Help us commemorate the outbreak of First World War


2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War and we want to hear from you, the readers.

Later this year we will be running a series of supplements on the local impact of the war and we are working closely with the Horncastle Civic Society ahead of their commemoration weekend in September.

The Civic Society will be holding a commemorative weekend on September 13 and 14 in line with Heritage Weekend at Horncastle’s Stanhope Hall and there will be live displays and a wealth of information about the local connections to the war.

There will be a tank, recruitment officer, nurse station and even a trench.

Civic Society Chairman Mary Silverton said: “We are looking for a personal touch from people about the impact of the war.
