A memento of the Great War

Germans guns went on display.

Six captured German rifles have been presented by the authorities to Winkfield Civil Parish. At a recent meeting of the Parish Council it was decided that they should be divided among the Schools, to be kept there as a memento of the Great War.

If we are fortunate enough to receive two rifles they will hang well on either side of the Roll of Honour in the main schoolroom.
