In addition to the website, and in conjunction with other parties, Wessington War Memorials Project has developed an App that can be installed on Apple or Android smartphones.
Click on the following link to see a poster with instructions about how to get the App. Note: you do not need to print the poster, when you have the AppFurnace Player running you can point your phone at the QR code on your computer screen. You don't have to tap anything, the app reads the code automatically.
The War Memorials Project works alongside the Wessington Poppies Group.

Our latest DVD is available. Made by Lonely Tower Film and Media and funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, the film is called ‘From Washington to Wipers and Warlencourt.’ The film tells the story of U3A members from Wessington, Sunderland, Washington Village and Cestria who went to France and Belgium to visit the cemeteries and memorials of their own relatives and of men from Washington.
It costs £3 or two for £5. Postage and packing in the UK £1.70 per DVD. Anyone wishing to buy one can contact me direct, Peter Welsh
