A special talk is to be held highlighting the stories of local soldiers whose names are immortalised on one of Darlington’s war memorials.

Local historian Anthony Magrys has carried out research into the 15 names on the Eastbourne World War One Memorial, which can now be found in St Herbert’s Church, in Yarm Road.

He will be discussing details of what he has learned about the soldiers who died during a special talk at Darlington’s Crown Street Library on Thursday 3 November, at 2pm.

Places must be booked in advance and tickets are £2, with all proceeds going to this year’s Poppy Appeal.

Mandy Fay, Senior Library Officer at Darlington Libraries, said:

“More than 1,100 young men from the town died on the battlefields during the First World War and the Eastbourne memorial is just one of several in the town which commemorates those who gave their lives in battle.

“The talk will offer an insight into the lives of some of those who died and will help raise money for this year’s Poppy Appeal.”

To book your place please call 01325 349630, pop into the Centre for Local Studies at the library or emaillocal.studies@darlington.gov.uk.
