A presentation on War Memorials by Mike Coyle

The end of the WW1 Centenary gives us the opportunity to consider the Legacy of that War and the loss to our communities. That Legacy includes the range and number of Memorials commemorating those lost in wars, civilians and armed services men and women. This talk covers the types and significance of war memorials to families and communities, as well as those efforts of the communities and individuals that seek to research and preserve them.

Mike Coyle is a passionate exponent of war memorials and their significance. He's a Regional Volunteer with the War Memorials Trust and a Fieldworker with the Imperial War Museum's 'War Memorials Register'.

There will be the opportunity to see a short film from the NWFA's collection showing the unveiling of a couple of North West War Memorials.

John Marsden will also explain the MLFHS War Memorials Project.
