Letters home

“I shall not be away long”: Stanhoe WI members hear voices from the Great War.

Stanhoe and Barwick WI members welcomed Andrew Tatham to their October meeting to refresh their memory of his first book “A Group Photo”, and to explain about the research which went into his subsequent book “I Shall Not Be Away Long”.

The group photo of 46 men of the 8th Battalion of the Royal Berkshire Regiment, taken in 1915 before setting off to fight in the First World War, started Andrew on his quest to discover who these men were, particularly as only 21 of them finally came back.

21 years later Andrew held a large exhibition in Ypres of work arising from his discoveries. This led to exposure on The Jeremy Vine Show on TV, and to the much increased sales of his resulting book “A Group Photo”. In March 2019 Andrew spoke to Stanhoe and Barwick WI about his work to date.

There were only two officers amongst the 46 men in the photo, one being Andrew’s great grandfather, and the other his second-in-command Charles Bartlett.

Charles Bartlett wrote home every day to his wife back in London. All of his letters were saved, and came to light from a family member during Andrew’s original research. The first letter contains the phrase “I shall not be away long”, which provided the title for the second book based on further research from all the letters. Some of the facts discovered, such as the provenance of Buzzards Dundee Cake, were amusing, but generally the facts about life in the trenches were much more serious.

It was a thought-provoking talk, and Andrew’s final words, “Life is constantly changing and you need to ask questions before it is too late”, rang true.

Beetling about

A familiar game amuses Stanhoe WI members at their “retro” afternoon.

It was a very hands-on afternoon when 23 members of Stanhoe and Barwick WI met for a “Retro afternoon”. In order to mix us up and get everyone to chatter to new people our task was to play “Beetle”, a game that many of us remember from childhood. Only this game had new rules.

Grouped at tables of four people we were each supplied with a pen and printed Beetle sheet, with scores shown for various beetle parts, and also individual spaces for one’s own total score of beetle parts, and the total numeric score, for each Beetle, as well as a space to draw your own if the fall of the dice for your turn at the table allowed this.

Who knew that we could be so noisy? And so competitive! And get in such muddles when the winners at each table had to move tables in a clockwise direction, and the lowest scorers moved tables in an anti-clockwise direction.

After four games had been played prizes were awarded for the highest total scores, and booby prizes for the lowest scores.

Tea and cake were well deserved, and having calmed down we listened attentively to the WI Business announcements before making our way home.
