World War II
War Memorial exhibition
As part of the national commemoration to mark the centenary of the outbreak of war in 1914, Tadley and District History Society (TADS) researched the lives of the 31 men listed on Tadley's War Memorial who were killed during World War I. An exhibition on the 31 men was held in the Community Centre in Tadley on Saturday 27 September 2014.
Following the success of the exhibition the Project Group researched the lives of the 6 men listed on the War Memorial who were killed during World War II: Leading Steward William Barlow, Ordinary Seaman Stanley Bowman, Sergeant Air Gunner Walter Carter, Private Harry Kite, Driver Gerald Webb.
A second exhibition, displaying research on the lives of the 6 men, was held on Saturday 8 November 2015 in St Paul's Church and Church Hall, The Green, Tadley.
As well as profiles on the 6 men killed in World War II, the exhibition also included two new displays, ‘Life in Tadley in World War II’ and 'Aldermaston Airfield', together with the profiles of the 31 World War I men displayed in September 2014.
After being displayed in St Paul's Church, parts of the exhibition were displayed in Tadley Library.
