Our series of annual commemorative WW1 exhibitions, held jointly with the Royal British Legion, continues with the events of 1917. The devastating German submarine attacks were a key factor for America to enter the War. Across Europe both sides fought desperately to hold and push back the front line, including the third Battle of Ypres (Passchendaele), and the Battle of Cambrai where tanks were used on a large scale for the first time. We also remember the people of Stotfold who helped to defend our country, and those who paid the ultimate price.
