This link is the last item in our report on our November 2018 talk "Mucker's on the wire", so you may see an important ceremony.
In this November of 2018, we will remember the end of conflict in the first world war with the cessation of active hostilities on the eleventh hour of the eleventh month of 1918.
The guns fell silent.
However many on all sides lost their lives in the conflict and many more died of wounds and disease thereafter. Unfortunately the memorials only show those who died in conflict, each memorial having the names of those whom that parish or place could remember and know as dead or missing in action, and who have no known resting place.
Like other places Culcheth remembered the dead of the Great War and subsequent wars and conflicts on a typical memorial. Some of the names have now faded, some have been restored. Some whose names are there no longer have local family to remember them, while others in Culcheth have family named in far away places,
Please attend a remembrance service this year or listen to the BBC broadcast of the Royal British Legion's remembrance event and ponder that our present freedoms were gained by actions of persons of all lands serving against hostile conquest.
