From pupils:

  • “As a result of [a project carried out as a result of War Memorials Trust’s visit to the school] next time we walk through the town centre we’ll be sure to stop and remember the 113 names of local men on the Baldock war memorial, who gave their lives fighting for our country. The whole project was altogether very enjoyable and thought provoking, thank you to War Memorials Trust for the opportunity to take part!”
  • “Since [a visit from War Memorials Trust’s Learning Officer] I have done my own research on people on the war memorial and went to the cenotaph for two minutes of silence.”
  • “Thank you for what you told us. You answered all of our questions.”
  • “I really learned a lot from what you said.”
  • "I liked looking at the memorial up close."
  • “The best part was using the internet to find out about the names. It was really fun!”
  • "Before, I didn't even know what war memorials are. Now I understand what they are all about."
  • “I learnt that Remembrance Day doesn’t have to be boring.”
