A ceremony to remember Letchworth’s fallen servicemen took place at the town’s railway station this afternoon to mark 100 years since Britain joined the First World War.
At 12.30pm representatives from First Capital Connect were joined by Herts at War chairman Jon Grant and North East Herts MP Sir Oliver Heald at Letchworth railway station to officially open the memorial gardens and unveil plaques dedicated to men who left the town 100 years ago, never to return.
Herts at War are launching their new First World War museum exhibition at the Arcade in Letchworth at 6pm this evening. The exhibition will tell the story of the county and further afield, at home and at war, during the conflict.
