WAR MEMO­RI­ALS TRUST

Evergreen - - News -

It is sad that ul­ti­mate past sac­ri­fices of­ten go un­no­ticed or, worse, to­tally un­ap­pre­ci­ated which is why we are happy to support the War Memo­ri­als Trust who send us reg­u­lar news­let­ters. The Bi­ble says “How will they know if no­body tells them?” Well, we are happy to tell ev­ery­one they have just cel­e­brated their 20th an­niver­sary.

Among their many re­cent grants was one to re­store a steam lo­co­mo­tive ( top right) cap­tured and used by the Ja­panese army in Sin­ga­pore. Re­turned to Bri­tain in 1953 it worked at Chatham Dock­yard be­fore find­ing a per­ma­nent home at Rut­land Rail­way Mu­seum where it has just been over­hauled by, among oth­ers, pupils of nearby Oakham School.
