100 Hearts War Stories

Is anyone else planning to take part in the Embroiderers Guild 100 Hearts project? The plan is for members to stitch hearts in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. The guild will exhibit them across the country in groups of 100, and I think they’ll be at Ally Pally too.

I’m planning to make one, in memory of two great-uncles who died in the First World War, one on a troopship and one in the battlefield in Flanders. If anyone else from Worthing Tuesday is doing one, it would be good to photograph them together before they go off.

  1. I am going to make a heart in memory of my uncle, Edgar Anscombe, who was my father’s brother. He was killed in action in France in January 1915 aged 19 years.
