TAL Festival is proud to be associated with this amazing project to locate the graves of every man listed on the Thame War Memorial. It is 100 years since the end of the ‘War to end all Wars’ and the Thame Remembers Team have worked solidly for a long time to ensure that every grave has been decorated and every man remembered.
It has been a true community event with people associated with Thame taking the crosses to the four corners of the world to place them on the soldiers’ last resting place. (Editors Note : We took two to Italy and found the graves of two young men – it was a truly moving experience)
David Bretherton and Alan Hickman have compiled a book to tell the story of how the project was brought to life. Join them and the whole team to find out about those who located the graves, those who took the crosses to them and those who could not return from them. It is a magnificent tale and we are delighted to play a small part.
