The Heroes Walk

It was immensely gratifying to see the commemorations in the Memorial Park in Crawley on my last visit. The display of photographs and the wildflowers that form the Heroes Walk were a splendid tribute. I spent an hour in the park and was very moved to see so many people walk from one picture to another to study the faces and images of the time. Of course the family photograph of Uncle Ted and Eddie is there and it made me feel very proud that one hundred years on residents of the town could see their faces. I hope that this tribute can continue throughout the centenary years.

Special thanks must go to Toby Shaw and Ruth Growney of the Crawley Borough Council.
