On a glorious sunny Saturday, the Oakley Village Show opened to celebrate, among other things, the centenary of the ending of World War I, remembering the sacrifice of all our military personnel, the soldiers and airmen as well as medical staff.
Some of us dressed up to take part in a parade. I’m pictured in a Red Cross uniform, standing alongside my mother.
We also entered the mini scarecrow competition, and as the theme this year was based on the centenary, my husband chose to make an accurate model of a tank of that era. I made the scarecrow, complete with tin hat, and he sat inside the tank. We were pleased to receive first prize. Mrs A.F., Oakley.
