Cards featuring the names of Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge’s young soldiers who died during WW1 have been created by a local history teacher with the intention of getting them displayed in the windows of homes where they lived.
As the nation marks Remembrance Sunday this weekend, the poignant project aims to raise local awareness of the young men who fell during service.
King Alfred School Academy Teachers Becky Dalziel and Nigel Smith have launched the project after seeing a post on social media about a similar scheme elsewhere that they thought could work well here too.
“Mrs Williams, King Alfred School’s resources manager and historian, has researched all the local boys and found their pictures and where they are buried. She also found their address from 1911 census records,” says Becky.
