Hi all,
had a lovely day at the heckington show in Lincolnshire today. Managed to buy a Royal Artillary 1st world war cap badge. it made my day as my grandfather was in the RGA 1st world war. Also paid £3 for a 1942 daily mail newspaper. Even the way news was reported is so different from how it is reported today.
I am going to add them to my family scrap book come photo album.
I started a site on face book about a year and a half ago. It was to invite those who were born, lived or worked in church st, marylebone, westminster. I now have 619 members who all have contributed history and old and new photo's of the area.
Even though i dont know many of the people in the photo's, they still show areas that have sadly dissapeared. Also I am getting memories from many of the contributers, which i will add to my scrap history book.
Im even joining our local English old building heritage society, im gonna be busy busy busy this year peeps. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx :D

Hello Sue
here is some information on RGA
The Royal Garrison Artillery

The RGA developed from fortress-based artillery located on British coasts. From 1914 when the army possessed very little heavy artillery it grew into a very large component of the British forces. It was armed with heavy, large calibre guns and howitzers that were positioned some way behind the front line and had immense destructive power.


I hope you find this useful
