The “Marlow Remembers WW1 Association” was formed in 2013 to research and record the events of the Great War including happenings on the Home Front as well as commemorating the fallen from the Marlow area.
The Association has now received an unexpected award from The British Association for Local History.
The award ‘Publications and Research 2019’ is for “ From Beer to Bombs: Wethered’s Brewery, Marlow, during World War 1”, a publication lodged with ‘Records of Buckinghamshire Vol.57 (2017)’ under the authorship of the Association’s Chairman, Andy Ford. Andy says that the award recognises the efforts of all the team members who contributed to the publication.
An award certificate will be presented by Professor Caroline Barron, President British Association for Local History, in London on their annual Local History Day, 1 June.
