World War 1 Memorial Soldiers and Sailors at Mersea Museum. 51 soldiers and sailors were displayed along the Strood for a year from 11th November 2018, organised by Duncan Pittock. They were then auctioned/raffled in aid of the founding charities, who had financed the project.
The right hand soldier is in memory of Bertie Woods, who was killed in action in France 11th August 1917. This soldier was privately donated and is a tribute to Brian Jay who organised the Museum's efforts to secure one of the soldiers.
