NEWS IN FOCUS | SE02EP08 Remembering Yesterday in Tomorrow’s Generation

This week’s News In Focus takes a special look at how our heroic ancestors are being remembered, and will be for generations to come.

It follows the story of Karen Dowsing, who recently saw her granddads name added to the role of honour on the Mansfield Heroes Memorial in Car Bank Park.  

Karen’s grandfather, Driver Albert Henry Ward, died out of action from tuberculosis and therefore, his name didn’t appear on any memorial. However having uncovered more about Albert’s story, years of hard work and determination from Karen – means Mr Ward’s name and legacy will live on forever.

During this evening’s show [Thursday 27th July] Karen chats to Craig Priest and exclusively shares her story with Mansfield 103.2 – revealing more about Albert’s war time exploits, everything from being rescued from Dunkirk, to serving in Italy, Egypt and Syria amongst others.

Also this week, Craig chats to Nottinghamshire author Clare Harvey, who specialises in writing war fiction based on facts she’s uncovered through research and real life accounts from war time. Clare’s third novel ‘The Night Raid’ is out today in hardback and is set in war time Nottinghamshire – she reveals the importance of literature in recalling the efforts of those involved in war time.
