Drumhead Service marks WWI centenary
Published 04/08/14



HUNDREDS of people attended a service in Henley on Sunday to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

The 30-minute drumhead service in Market Place was led by Rev Ducan Carter, vicar of Holy Trinity Church,.

A plaque commemorating the town’s “forgotten” soldiers was unveiled by the Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire Tim Stevenson.

The plaque features the names of 298 soldiers from the Henley area who fought in the war, including about 90 whose names are not included on the town’s existing memorials.

The service, which also featured standard bearers from 10 Royal British Legion branches, ended with the Last Post and a two-minute silence before four Tiger Moth biplanes performed a fly-past.

The Lord Lieutenant was also presented with a copy of Bringing Them Home, a 320-page book about the men from Henley who died in the war by amateur historian Mike Willoughby, from Woodcote.

A full story and more pictures will be published in this week's Henley Standard.
