I set off, avoided the mobility scooters, cyclist on the pavements and the skateboarders, and eventually got to Nottingham Castle.
This is a photo of a model of the original Nottingham Castle I took, not very good, bad lighting, but it’s interesting.
Amongst the medals received into the Museum were; DSO and Bar, MC, French Croix de Guerre, Italian Silver Medal for Military Valour, K St J – Order of St John of Jerusalem, British War Medal, Victory Medal + MID Oakleaf, 1914-15 Star, 1939 – 1945 Star, France & Germany Star, Defence Medal 1939 – 1945, War Medal 1939 – 1945, King George VI Coronation Medal 1937, Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Medal 1953, CB
Going through the War Museum gave me long deep thoughts. As it said in a poster, and set in flowers in the ground: “From the Trent to the Trenches!”
I was humbled after reading some of the soldier’s stories.
