Wednesday 31st October   La Grande Illusion plus Cornish Tommies- commissioned by C Fylm  Devoran Village Hall

Doors 7.30pm Film 7.45pm.

A new short documentary accompanies a season of First World War films across Cornwall this autumn.

To celebrate the Centenary of Armistice Day, C Fylm has commissioned a young student team and school and college children to get involved in telling and learning about Cornwall’s First World War stories by producing a short documentary film. The Cornish Tommies project will enable local people throughout Cornwall to come together to preserve the memories and heritage of Cornish families who lived through the First World War.

In the La Grande Illusion two French soldiers are captured and imprisoned in a German POW camp during WW1. Several escape attempts follow until they are sent to a seemingly impenetrable fortress which seems impossible to escape from.

Cornish Tommies tells the story of an 18 year old Cornish Miner from St Agnes called up in 1917.

Sunday 11 November 11.30am Devoran Village Hall     100 Remembered

Join us for coffee in the home of the Devoran Roll of Honour to remember the end of WW1 and the changes it brought to Devoran and the surrounding area. The Roll of Honour was restored in 2015, thanks to a Heritage Lottery grant. The restoration revealed a first draft of the Roll of Honour and the initials of the calligrapher ‘GLB’. The initials are thought to be those of the village doctor’s daughter Gwendoline Layton Blunt nee Edwards. Since discovering the initials Devoran Village Hall and the Devoran War memorial Project have been searching for an image of Gwendoline Layton Blunt, unsuccessfully. They would be delighted to hear from anyone who has an image of her. There will be a display by Devoran War Memorial Project about those men on the Roll of Honour who did not return. All welcome.
