A Time to Remember

As we start Remembrance Week, Merton Heritage Service is launching a new set of resources to honour the borough's war dead and pay tribute to members of the Armed Forces, past and present. 

The new page contains a variety of online displays, reminiscences, archive film, poetry, music, research guides, puzzles and children's resources. You can also find information about military charities and support services, including the annual Poppy Appeal. We are also inviting you to download our Poppy page and share your war stories, or memories of friends or relatives from the Armed Forces - these will be added to a special tribute page on our website.

Click on this link to view our new Remembrance page, or use the History Pages tab at the top of the Merton Memories homepage.

We should never forget the debt we owe to generations of servicemen and women - thousands sacrificed their lives and many more bear the physical scars and suffer ongoing mental trauma from their wartime experiences. 

Although the pandemic has halted many of the traditional Remembrance services, please take time to remember our war dead, veterans and their families this week and support the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
