Letters: Do you have memorabilia from the First World War?
THIS November is the last Remembrance Sunday before we mark the events of the centenary of the First World War.
SSAFA was one of the few military charities to have provided care and support to our troops and their families during that terrible conflict.
Back then, as now, SSAFA had a team of volunteers working in Taunton to care for the wives and the children of those sent to the front.
We were also there to deal with the consequences when the men did not return.
SSAFA in Taunton Deane is seeking to discover more about the people we supported to help us mark our contribution to the nation's war effort.
If you have memorabilia, a diary or a family connection to a client or volunteer during the Great War, then SSAFA would like to hear from you.
We continue to be as relevant today as we were then and SSAFA is still providing our Forces and their families with lifelong support.
In Somerset alone, we helped almost 400 people last year.
If you have any information regarding SSAFA and the Great War then do contact us at 01984 624564 or homeshaw@ btopenworld.com.
