Committed to collecting and celebrating our past
In issue 31 of In Our Age magazine: twenty-nine days a soldier before he died on the western Front - relatives remember their families and the first world War.
While Henry Moss recalls the sounds of Spitfires overhead and Gladys Christopher her days at Royal Ordnance Factory Rotherwas, readers remember the British Restaurant, the old Odeon, Brook Brothers, the Great Western Railway's and the Hereford Healy sports car are all remembered.

Herefordshire Lore has been collecting, publishing and archiving people's recollections since 1989. Herefordshire Lore works to remember, celebrate and record Herefordshire's past history before it is lost with passing generations. It is run by a group of volunteers who design, plan and gain funding for projects.
A diverse range of resources have been published including the quarterly 'In Our Age' and our latest book 'A Slap of the Hand'. A related 'Teaching Pack' is also available on this web site. Our thanks go to our many contributors and funders especially the Heritage Lottery Fund.
