The Moseley History Group has produced a book on Moseley and Kings Heath people who served in Gallipoli, a particularly nasty and fruitless campaign during World War One. One of those is Douglas Greenway of the 4th Worcesters. There is a window dedicated to him in the St Mary’s Church. He was killed on 17/10/15.
His life and service, and those of six others will be a commemorated at a Memorial Service at 1.30 at St. Mary’s Church, (B13 8HW)
This will be followed by a Book launch at 3.00 at Moseley Exchange, (B13 8JP)
There will be a display of artefacts and original documents.
The launch will include a short talk entitled Gallipoli: the local perspective by Ian Binnie, Education Co-ordinator and Trustee of the Gallipoli Association.
We will also be remembering Able Seaman Leonard Gwynne Coslett, RN, Private Charles Ledbrook, 4th Worcesters, Fitter Harold Francis Hazledine, RFA, Bombardier William Wright, RHA and two who served in Gallipoli and survived only to be killed in other campaigns; Private Harry Bunce, 9th Warwicks, Quartermaster Sergeant Maurice Hobson, Worcester Yeomanry.
