On Saturday 6th November Daventry Museum welcomes back local war historian, Gerry Thompson, with a poignant display entitled, Faces of the Fallen

This special Remembrance display will show 80 photographs of the Daventry Soldiers, of both World War One and World War Two, who never came home. 

Alongside the display will be a Roll of Honour video, naming all the Daventry Soldiers on the War Memorial, as well as those Daventry Soldiers remembered on other war memorials across the world.  Among the video are also the nine American Airmen who gave their lives during World War Two when their B17 Flying Fortress hit the Air Ministry Gee Mast on Borough Hill, returning from a bombing mission in Germany. 

Gerry Thompson will be at the museum on Saturday to talk about the fallen Daventry Soldiers and is happy to answer your questions.

The display is only on for a week from Saturday 6th November to Friday 12th November 2021, during the following opening times: Tuesday to Friday from 9.30am to 1.30pm and the first Saturday of the month from 10am to 4pm.
