As part of that commemoration a series of flower displays have been designed for Priory Park that are linked to First World War poetry and will form a reflective commemorative trail which, suitably refreshed, will be a fitting tribute through the duration of the 4 years commemoration until This links with plans to plant commemorative trees in the park and throughout the town.
It was intended that these seeds should be planted in remembrance of those who fought in World War 1. In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. Although situated in the far south-west of the country, Bodmin was not immune from the realities and impact of the Great War.
On 23rd Augustat dawn, the battalion had their first encounter with the enemy. Not all who enlisted joined the army, many went into Naval Service and, indeed, many horses from local farms were requisitioned for the purpose of pulling guns and wagons at the Front. Binyon composed his poem while sitting on the cliff-top looking out to sea from the north Cornish coastline and a plaque marks the location at Pentire Point, north of Polzeath.
The poem was written in mid-Septembera few weeks after the outbreak of the First World War. During these weeks the British Expeditionary Force had suffered casualties following its first encounter with the Imperial German Army at the Battle of Mons on 23rd August, its rearguard action during the retreat from Mons in late August and the Battle of Le Cateau on 26th August, and its participation with the French Army in holding up the enemy at the First Battle of the Marne between 5th and 9th September Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit, Fallen in the cause of the free.
The first stanza of the poem appertains to the War Memorial itself. It is the place at which we gather to remember all of those who served their country, irrespective of the role that any individual played.
The War Memorial is a symbol of our pride and sadness. Death august and royal Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres. There is music in the midst of desolation And a glory that shines upon our tears. The drum head altar was a common site on the battlefield. Consequently, the regimental drums would be placed in the manner shown, in order to provide an altar. That is, they are coloured predominantly blue with a crimson panel. The three bottom drums are snare drums; the bass drum is placed upon the heads of the tenor drums and the top drum is the tenor.
The drum skins have been created using white Allysum; the brackets are detailed with Echeveria and purple and blue Lobelia. The Infantry Horn, the cipher of the DCLI has been placed at the front of the altar and is planted up with Altanathera goldthe apron, upon which the altar is built and is planted with Echeveria Elegans.
Community Involvement They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted, They fell with their faces to the foe. William Hearn was Dartmouth's only head constable for ten years until the Dartmouth authorities could afford to appoint a deputy by the name of Earle.
During the General Election, Hearn was employed by Messrs Bridgeman and Prout, attorneys for the Liberal interest, to investigate citizens of the borough for trying to corrupt the vote.
Hearn refused, and shopped the man in to the Dartmouth Magistrates, severely damaging the reputation of the Tory Party.

Exeter City Police to The ancient City of Exeter had a muddled melange of law enforcers since time immemorial. At the turn of the 19th century, a system of serjeants-at-mace, staff-bearers, watchmen and parish and special constables was in place for the good of the people. The serjeants-at-mace ran the courts at the direction of the Magistrates, while the staff-bearers served summonses, attended to the Mayor and oversaw the running and care of the Guildhall.
During daylight hours though there was little in the way of an established and visible police presence and crime and anti-social behaviour was rife.
An Act for paving, lighting and watching codified the responsibilities of the city's law enforcers and gave them powers of arrest for persons considered to be "felons, beggars, malefactors, vagrants, disturbers of the peace" or anyone "loitering in groups and not giving a satisfactory account of themselves.
The force was known for its highly efficient conference point system — constables on patrol toured the city like clockwork using police telephone kiosks later pillars to report any occurrences since the last checkpoint.
Honiton Borough Police to The Borough of Honiton received its first police force in and comprised half a dozen constables under Superintendent John Treby. In Novemberthe Honiton authorities opted to have the services of the new Devon Constabulary at a cheaper rate than the municipals. As a direct result, all of the constables resigned being ineligible to vote as police constables, they wanted to be sure they could vote against the motion.
In Februarythe Honiton Borough Police was no more. Okehampton Borough Police to Constables George James and Joseph Millman served Okehampton by informal arrangement fromalthough were poorly paid and permitted to take other employment. When the chief constable of Devon announced his intention to send the county police into Okehampton inthe police committee rejected them.
It was not until that the chief constable was able to send constables to Okehampton, after having to seek significant legal advice from the Exeter Magistrates.

South Molton Borough Police to Despite peaking at only two constables inthe efficiency of the South Molton Borough Police was consistently praised by the HMI thanks to the indefatigable William Henry Fisher — the first and only superintendent. From the force worked in the shadow of the county police, stationed only streets away on Steppa Lane modern day North Street and following a review of the borough finances inmerged with the Devon Constabulary.
The Mayor of South Molton at the time, Mr John Cock, made it known in his many public appearances and books, that the abolition of the South Molton Borough Police was the worse decision in the borough's history. Tavistock Borough Police to Although Tavistock was excluded from the municipal act, the wealthy Duke of Bedford insisted on having a system for enforcing the law. In the Duke contacted the London Metropolitan Police and requested the services of a superintendent to oversee a police force.
Mark Merritt arrived in Tavistock and was appointed as the first, and only, chief constable of Tavistock and was stationed at the Guildhall on Bedford Square. The existing parish constables of Tavistock were placed under Merritt's supervision and were provided with better equipment and fees. By the force had outgrown its police station and the Duke authorised the construction of a new police and court building on the site of the ruined Tavistock Abbey.
Despite resistance in other towns such as Bradninch and Okehampton, the Tavistock Borough Police was unable to challenge the authority of the Devon Constabulary and by the end of FebruarySuperintendent Merritt found himself redundant.
Tiverton Borough Police to It took many years to convince the public and the first Tivertonian constables stepped out onto East Street on 30 May — one superintendent and three constables. For days innot a single prisoner was committed to the town gaol; a flag flew high above the building until the cycle was broken. Inthe existence of the force was threatened when Government commissioners arrived in Tiverton and attempted to convince the borough authorities to merge with the county police.
Chief Constable Beynon fiercely defended the eleven-strong force in an extended session at the borough court; the commissioners eventually departed, and the continued service of the Tiverton Borough Police was assured for many years more.
It was not untilwhen the pressures of the Second World War took their toll on Devon, that the force finally amalgamated with the county. Chief Constable Morris of Devon visited the force on 28 November and provided them with new warrant cards, and welcomed them into the county police family. Torquay District Police to The two parish constables already serving for the year were placed under his supervision and paid 16 shillings a week for their trouble.
On 1 MayKilby was ordered to step down to make way for the county police. He was distraught, having faithfully served Torquay for two decades, and was refused a position in the Devon Constabulary on age grounds. The Torrington Borough Police holds the distinction of having existed twice.
In Maythe force volunteered governance to the Devon Constabulary, but by the Corporation of Torrington was dissatisfied with the services of the county police and re-established the municipal force. This arrangement remained in place untilwhen the harsh terms of the Local Government Act mandated amalgamation with the county. Totnes Borough Police to Two constables were appointed in Totnes under the Municipal Act, although their activities in the early days are difficult to describe.
John Bishop and his deputy, Mr Ellis, served infrequently in the borough. So infrequently in fact, that when the Government Inspector arrived in the summer of he could not find Bishop or Ellis and concluded there was no police force present save for the occasional duties performed by two elderly Serjeants-at-Mace.
It could not be said though that the Totnes townsfolk were not fond of their policemen. When the borough authorities decided to adopt the services of the Devon Constabulary ina riot erupted and windows and property were damaged. Devon County Constabulary to On 1 JanuaryGerald de Courcy Hamilton emerged as leader of the new police force for the county of Devon and he immediately set about recruiting.
By February, the strength of the Devon Constabulary was men, consisting of Hamilton, four superintendents, two inspectors, twelve sergeants and one-hundred and eight constables. Training was administered in the courtyard at Exeter Castle, with classroom tuition provided at the Exeter Ragged School. Headquarters, at least temporarily, was located at Hamilton's own house! This was an arrangement simply could not last, and at the meeting of the Police Committee, Hamilton complained that he could not continue to use his home as the base of operations, for the small office space he occupied was damaging his maps.
