Beccles and District Museum

THE museum is now open for the 2019 season. The first special exhibition is entitled ‘Beccles Through Time’ and comprises photographs and artefacts from the mid-19th century onwards. If you enjoy history and would like to support the museum, you might like to know that the museum is seeking to appoint some additional trustees. Being a trustee will give you an insight into how a vibrant and successful museum operates and will enable you to make a

valuable contribution to

the museum’s ongoing work. Trustees meet four or five times a year.

As well as

being satisfying in terms of your personal enjoyment and development, being a trustee may help your career development or lead to other voluntary positions.

The museum is also looking for an honorary secretary and honorary treasurer, as our existing post-holders are retiring. The duties are varied and interesting and you would be part of a team that works very well together.

For information about any of these opportunities please contact

Dr Barry Darch,

Chairman of Trustees:

Wishing Bungay Lions success World War One Tablecloth discovered in Harleston, Norfolk

A UNIQUE piece of World War One history has recently been discovered in Harleston, a three-foot square linen tablecloth, signed by many soldiers who stayed at the two Red Cross hospitals in the town between 1914-1918. They have written their names and service details in ink which can still be clearly seen; the tablecloth is like an international autograph book with signatures from many

countries, Scotland, are England, Wales, Ireland,

Canada, Australia and France. At the centre of the tablecloth signatures of medical

staff and those that kept the hospitals running, one name we know, Mr Alderton, was the quartermaster and the father of a son killed in WW1. Another, Miss Ellen de Jerzey Forrest, who lived in Pulham St Mary, is the lady we must thank for taking care of the tablecloth when the hospitals closed. She folded it away until some twenty years

later she gave

it to Mrs Adcock, a lady who had helped around the house where she lived. Her daughter Pauline recently transferred it to the care of Terry Pegg of the Harleston & District Branch of the Royal British Legion. Terry has been working with researcher and author


Ruth Walton to find out more about the 144 names on the tablecloth, 104 soldiers and 40 other personnel. This includes staff and other patients – many of the staff were local people. It is planned to showcase the tablecloth and the research at suitable venues and events in

and around Harleston during the coming months, when we hope to learn much more about the huge community effort that

people and nearby

from Harleston villages


have made to help the sick and wounded soldiers, and possibly other casualties such as Woolwich Arsenal munition workers.

The tablecloth, which has survived remarkably well and is thought to be quite rare, will be professionally


by Norfolk Museums Service, ensuring that from time to time it can be displayed safely, and will be seen by future generations. This has been made possible by generous grants from ‘The Grapevine’ magazine,

Redenhall with

Harleston Town Council, the Harleston branch of the Royal British Legion and other kind benefactors. For further information on this remarkable


or to see a list of names, please

when and

where the tablecloth will be displayed will be published after the tablecloth has been returned

from The Norfolk

Museum Service later in April. This will also include some stories behind the names on the

the researcher, his

tablecloth. If you have any information and want to contact
