World War One in Damage Barton


World War One in Damage Barton

We travelled down to Devon in Damnvan1 to spend a few weeks exploring Devon and Cornwall. Yippee !!
Our first stop was to be in North Devon on a fantastic Caravan Club site called Damage Barton (what a great name!) the site was really good. When we arrived the first thing we did was to attend a coffee morning at the farm house. A beautiful house in an idyllic spot. They were raising funds for a local church flower festival. The money was to arrange a flower display for every local fallen soldier in the Great War. As this was the 6th June it was very thoughtful and sad. It was also such a nice thought that these young men and boys were to be remembered probably long after their families have also passed on, in such a beautiful way. Lest we forget….
