  • WAR MEMORIAL ROCKS

The names of 117 local, fallen servicemen from the Great War 1914-1918, are inscribed on the two war memorials on the Town Hall in the Market Place, Blandford Forum.

During this centenary year of the Armistice (1918-2018), the Town Council is preparing 117 rocks, one with each serviceman’s name on (two pictured). Once they are ready, the rocks will be placed at the foot of the war memorials and the public will be invited to come and take them to hide.

The aim is for those who find a hidden rock to visit our website to find out more information about each serviceman, so they are no longer just names on a memorial but local men - fathers, sons and brothers - with a story to tell. Sadly, there are no details for 17 of them, other than their names. 
Those who find the rocks will be asked to post a picture of the rocks on the Blandford Rocks Facebook page and to rehide them. 
In addition, some members of the Blandford Rocks Facebook group will be arranging a Poppy Drop where children can paint poppies onto rocks in Woodhouse Gardens (more details to follow soon). The Royal British Legion has kindly given permission for the Legion Poppy to be drawn into each rock.
