Sydney was due home on leave and his mother was excited to receive a telegram, expecting it to say when he would be back. Sadly it bore the news that he was seriously wounded.

Friends of Marple Memorial Park's WWI Timeline Tribute display in the park has been updated with information about William Duxbury.

Almost nothing is known about William's connection to Marple. Regimental records indicate that he was born in Mellor and his home was in Hyde and there may be a family connection to James Duxbury (died 4 April 1917).

Over the weekend Friends of the Park had a dry run fitting 141 knitted poppies on the war memorial handrails - one for each man remembered from WWI.

These will be back in November for Remembrance 2018. Didn't they look great!
