MEMORIES AND INFORMATION - WORCESTERSHIRE

Lt.-Col. F. H. LIDDELL, M.C.
1st SHROPSHIRE BATTALION
and the
SHREWSBURY TATTOO - 19th August 1944


The story of much of Lt.-Col. Frank Liddell's Home Guard service as C.O. of the 1st Shropshire Battalion is told on an associated page of this website, as is that of his Great War service.

Frank Liddell’s creative and organisational abilities were not restricted to Battalion operations alone. In his papers survive records of the Tattoo which was held in The Quarry at Shrewsbury on Saturday, August 19th, 1944 in aid of the Shrewsbury Red Cross Appeal. He is shown in the programme as Tattoo Director and from his surviving papers we can see detailed instructions for the event.












And this is how the local press saw the outcome in a report which appeared a day or two later:
