Cheque Presentation - 31st May
Alan Roberts of View Web Design presents a cheque to Richard Davies, Curator of the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh.
View Web Design, a Brecon based company run by Alan Roberts and his wife, was selected by “Brecon Remembers” to design and maintain the Website that is to compliment the book that is being produced this Summer on the lives and background to the Brecon men who fell in World War One.
During conversations around the details of the project Alan became aware of the support and help provided by the Regimental Museum and has chosen to donate monies to the Museum in recognition of their support to this and other research projects , as well as their valuable presence in Brecon itself.
View Web Design have already produced the outline website for the project, in advance of the book publication. The website will be populated with stories and data from the book and also be available for additional information that emerges after publication.
Project Lead Steve Morris was present to witness the donation and discuss current issues with Alan and Richard.
The group also discussed the anniversary of the Battle of Jutland and remembered Signaller Cyril Hardwick from Brecon, aged 18, who died aboard HMS Indefatigable 100 years ago today.
