'A Patriotic Wreath' by Sue Mawer and 'Sergeant John Scott' by Pat Thomson
This wreath is in memory of the whole of our nation who suffered the atrocities and brutality of World war 1 - those who fought and died, those who came home alive, those injured in body and mind, those who waited at home desperate for news of their loved ones and those who worked so hard to keep our troops equipped.

Sergeant John Scott served with the Canadian Infantry in the First World War. He was uncle to Pat Thomson, nee Scott, from Tregony. John had moved to Canada and, at the outbreak of the war, joined the 21st Battalion, Canadian Infantry, for overseas service. Sadly, John was killed in action in April 1916 at the age of 24. He was awarded the 15 star trio and is commemorated on the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial.
