A HAND MADE MYSTERY FROM WORLD WAR ONE DISCOVERED IN BRECON
By Anne Ward
In November 2018 I was in a charity shop, rummaging in a bag of white goods for a tablecloth for Christmas Day, when I came across this unusual embroidered double bedspread.
Unusual because the embroidery was not of baskets, seasons, flowers or bonneted ladies. There wasn’t even a bird or bow!
The embroidery was of REGIMENTAL BADGES!?!
Twelve in total representing assorted units from seven commonwealth countries!
When my husband Damian and I identified them, another unique fact came to light- they were all active in World War One! Now we were REALLY intrigued!
This amazing bedspread helped us through 2020 by taking us on an international and often time travelling adventure including 1914 Ypres, a British actor in Hollywood, an Irish Convent, Chequers (yes- THAT one) and to numerous professional historic organisations.
And all because there is NO clue on it of WHO, WHERE, WHY etc it was made! NOTHING AT ALL!
These questions inspired us to write a book about our adventure and we are pleased that
