Wreath laid in memory of TB Hardy in Rossignol Wood on the Somme.
In late June 2006 Anne Huntington from Hutton Roof post office kindly made a wreath which contains the following message:"Rev. T.B. Hardy, V.C.,D.S.O.,M.C. with remembrance from the villagers of Hutton Roof, Cumbria". The wreath was taken to the Somme and David Raw, Hardy's biographer, fastened it to a tree in Rossignol Wood. This was one of the places where the Reverend Hardy performed one of many selfless acts of courage in rescuing a young soldier for which he was awarded the Victoria Cross.
