Tweedsmuir Camp Exhibition
One of the Tweedsmuir Camp Exhibition aims is to provide schools with free educational resources. This link has examples of tasks that pupils could be encouraged to complete. They are designed with National Curriculum History in mind. The tasks available online will be added to over a period of time.
Diddington Camp (Diddington Field Hospital, Diddington Army Hospital or just Diddington Hospital) was built in the shire of Huntington (today the shire of Cambridge) in the United Kingdom (UK). There are two reasons for including on our website information about Diddington Camp. First, it was the birth place of many children who lived in Tweedsmuir Camp, and second because we have fielded many questions asking for information about Diddington the camp.
For example, Elka e-mailed us at the end of November 2009.
Elka's e-mail is a good example of the type of comments we have received about Diddington Camp since publishing our website.
Warrant Officer 1 Class W. Gura and Sergeant A. Dziegielewski
Warrant Officer 1 Class W. Gura and Sergeant A. Diegielewski were two Polish soldiers who are buried next to each other in the cemetery of St Lawrence church, Diddington. Over the past sixty years or so, they have become 'mini celebraties' in the area. Read about these two Polish soldiers by accessing the Gura and Dzlegielewski link in the right hand column.
In December 2009 we were invited by Pam and Dave Dodman to provide material for a 'Historical Weekend', which they arranged for 15 and 16 May 2010 at St Lawrence church, Diddington. You can read about this event by accessing the Historical Weekend link in the right hand column.
We invite you to view some of the images and artefacts presented to the Tweedsmuir Camp Exhibition project by enthusiastic volunteers. If you would like to contribute please contact us through our website.
Poland Writes! ... Polska Pisze! ...
An invitation to people who live in Poland to write to us about topics they feel would add to the history depicted on this website.
Research and Education
We are privileged that our website has started to become the source for many educational endeavours. This has always been the intention - to share our research with the wider community. In this section we cite how our work has been disseminated.
As the Research and Education section is an organic component of our website it will grow with time. You may, therefore, like to revisit this section periodically to view new endeavours.
