THE WW1 Project Team, set up in 2014 to commemorate the centenary of The First World War, has commissioned a special travelling exhibition to commemorate the centenary of The Battle of Passchendaele, fought between 31st July and 10th November 1917. The battle has become infamous for heavy casualties, with nearly half a million deaths, heavy rains and has also been called ‘the battle of the mud’.
Harlow and the surrounding villages lost five men in the conflict:

Private Lee Lewis
Driver Albert Edward Lincoln
Private Victor Albert Burton
Gunner Montague Jones Winch
Private Joseph Culver

The exhibition will begin at The Royal British Legion (Harlow Branch) w/c 24th July 2017 and then travel to various locations around the town, including: Harlow Library, The Harvey Centre and more.
