HEADS were bowed as silence fell across two South Warwickshire villages to mark 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War. A wreath-laying service and parade was held in Tanworth-in-Arden on Saturday, while in Welford a commemorative exhibition hosted artwork and looked at the lives of the 19 village men killed out on the battlefield. Among the items was a letter written by private Jim Matthews, from the village, just two days before he died. In Tanworth, relatives of those who lost their lives were given the chance to honour them by laying a wreath at the village war memorial. The youngest to get involved was of primary school age while the oldest was in their 90s, organiser Peter Oakley told the Herald.
