'PEMBROKESHIRE'S First World War: Personal Memories and Family Mementoes' will bring to life stories of local soldiers who served (and died) during that most terrible of conflicts.

Organised by members of the Pembrokeshire Historical Society this much-anticipated, it will see four speakers make presentations rich in previously unseen images and archival material.

Anne Eastham will speak about her grandfather Captain James Hamilton Langdon Yorke MC who died in Palestine on December 27, 1917.

Well-known land agent Edward Perkins will speak about the Johns family of Manorowen.

Four sons served and one - Lieutenant Owen Llewellyn John MC - was killed in action in June 1916.

Adrian James will talk about his grandfather, Thomas Samuel James of the Royal Field Artillery, who came from Pembroke.

And Harry Boggis-Rolfe will talk about Lionel Thomas of Llandeloy, who died serving with the Machine Gun Corps at Passchendale in September 1917.

There will a display of First World War medals awarded to Pembrokeshire men, and a small exhibition.

Society chairman Simon Hancock said : "Having recently commemorated the centenary of the end of the First World War it seems highly appropriate to remember the enduring legacy of that war, of lives cut short.

"The fallen were heroes all."

The talk will take place at the Picton Centre, Haverfordwest on Friday, February 1, at 7.30pm.
