World War One to be remembered in Honiton

09:53 01 August 2014

Commemoration services to mark the 100th anniversary of the Great War.

Honiton Armed Forces Day Committee will be paying tribute to the men who lost their lives during World War One.

This will be done over the next four years and all of the sixty six men who are named on Honiton’s war memorial will be honoured.

However, there is one exception. After ten years of researching the curator of Allhallows Museum has been unable to determine who W J Hooper was or where and when he died.

He will be honoured at 11am on Monday, August 4, by the war memorial outside St Paul’s Church to mark the 100th anniversary of the day Great Britain entered into the war.

St Paul’s Church will be holding a Holy Communion service on Sunday, August 3, at 9.30am, followed by a service of readings, music and reflections on Monday, August 3. The service starts at 8pm and will last about an hour.

During the week of August 4, there will be a number of activities reflecting and focusing on the Great War - all are welcome to come along and take part.

Honiton Town Council will be hosting a civic service at St Paul’s Church on Sunday, August 17, at 3pm.

St Andrew’s Church in Feniton is holding a World War One commemoration service at 11am on Sunday, August 3.

Feniton History group will also put on a display of the village’s fallen soldiers and serving men.
