HERITAGE OPEN DAYS EXHIBITION

MEMORIES and memorabilia documenting how Lincolnshire Wolds residents coped during times of conflict will be on show at the Sessions House, Eastgate in Louth from September 11 – 13 as part of Heritage Open Days, a countywide initiative.

The exhibition is a partnership between Louth Town Council, Down Your Wold and Lincolnshire Memories and Memorials projects and will be open to the public from 10am to 2pm on Thursday and Friday and 10am – 4pm on Saturday 13.

Volunteers have been working on an exhibition which includes local items relating to the First and Second Wold Wars. Also included are videos which have captured memories from war veterans speaking about their first hand experiences.

One very special story has come to light which is that of local man Patrick Hagan who will be known locally in the Louth area as the founder of Mr Chips on Aswell Street.  Mr Hagan has agreed that his film can be shown to the public in Louth Library on September 13th at 4.30pm as part of the Wolds in Wartime Exhibition, which is open to all.

His story has been recorded by volunteer, Paul Espin, who has always been extremely interested in the social impact of the Second World War. Paul explains: “As a result of this interest I was given a unique opportunity to interview Patrick Hagan who was in 47 (Royal Marine) Commando. It was a privilege to listen and record his detailed experiences of the Second World War.

“I felt very honoured to be able to produce a film that gave an insight into Patrick’s early life, his time as a Commando and his subsequent visit to France and Belgium for the 70thAnniversary of the D-Day Landings this year.”

Paul Espin’s work to record the memories of the people living through the Second World War can be viewed at www.livingthroughWW2.com .
