John Spencer Whitham, of Bucklar Hill, served as a stretcher-bearer in WW1 with the Duke of Welington’s (West Riding) Regiment. He survived the war and when he died, in 1950, this motto was found tucked away inside his bible. As we approach the start of 2018, with the centenary of the end of WW1 coming in November, it is a reminder of the state of mind of Farnhillers 100 years ago.
