The Great War

Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday will soon be here again, when we all remember those who gave their lives so that others could live. Looking through the collection Barry found a few photographs which most people will not have seen before. They are of Bamletts of Thirsk, which made agricultural implements and machinery. These pictures show the metal posts used for erecting barbed wire fencing in trench warfare. The workers, of course, are all ladies, the men who usually worked there being in the forces.

On Thursday 12th November the museum is organising a play with local schoolchildren a the village hall in Hutton-le-Hole called 'Standing in Line' based on the Great War.
