At 11am on Sunday 11th November it will be exactly one hundred years since the declaration of armistice that brought World War 1 to an end – a war in which 163 men from De Beauvoir lost their lives. The initials and surnames of the men are listed in a simple plaque in St Peter’s church, and over the past five years a small group of people have been researching their details – how old they were, where they lived, how and where they died. These details have now been made into a beautiful book of honour that is to be dedicated during a special service and laid before the plaque for all visitors to consult. The service will begin as usual at 10am and will include special prayers and readings for peace and reconciliation in the world. There will be the traditional two-minute silence at 11am, during which the church bell will be tolled 163 times, and the service will end with the presentation of the Book of Honour. If you wish to be present for the final part of the service only, please be sure to be in your place by 10.50 so that the silence can be observed respectfully.- Words by Amanda Davies.
