Mike and Polly—Worcestershire Remembers WWI

Mike Alma and Polly Stretton

Mike and Polly had a stall at the ‘Worcestershire Remembers WWI’ exhibition at The Guildhall in Worcester 4 August 2018. Mike took along copies of ‘Voices of 1919’ and ‘Fragments of the Great War–My Family at War’ and Polly produced copies of the three anthologies compiled to celebrate the 100 years since the Great War.

The exhibition was well-attended and it was good to see so many visitors interested in and talking about the poetry and prose on display.
