The Wartime Afternoons at Gulval and Madron

Again many thanks to all those who came to the Wartime afternoon on Sunday 6th April 2014 at Landithy Hall, Madron.

Tea and biscuits were available and the latest edition of 'The Four Parishes' was on sale, which summarised the items on display. Also available was a copy of the  Gulval and Madron Roll of Honour listing the men and women of Madron and Gulval who laid down their lives in time of conflict

We would like to let you know that Carfury Antiquarians are not linked to the large funded organisation that put their flyers into our display without letting us know. We are all volunteers and are not part of a business.

Also a big thank you for all those who turned out for the Wartime Afternoon which took place in Gulval Village Hall (also known as Lanisley Hall ) on Sunday 2nd February 2014 at 2pm. The Hall was thonged with people deep in conversation with the contributers and each other.

It featured the Home Guard and Auxiliary Unit based in Madron during the Second World War and also the local men that fought or served in any field of conflict in any century. On display were the kind of weapons, booby traps and uniform of the Home Guard and Auxiliary units.

The Madron and Gulval war memorials have been thoroughly researched and the stories of many of the men have been compiled. Photographs of these men are being sought to put a more personal touch to the names. There were lots of Home Guard photographs of the Madron and Gulval parishes.

There were other older stories going from the 16th to the 20th century. For further information see Latest News January 2014.

Photos of these men at the time of the 1940s would be great...CAN YOU HELP?

Does anyone know of a German bomber crash in the area of Trezelah?

We look forward to your future support, remember to keep an eye on the Cornishman newspapers, the website and your local pubs and shops for information concerning activities.
