Search for long lost thank you speech to Banbury WWI squadron
Banbury Town Council is appealing for information as to the whereabouts of a WWI thank you speech presented to, the then, Banbury Borough Council in 1919.
The speech relates to the actions of the Banbury Squadron of the Queen’s Own Oxfordshire Hussars on November 11, 1918 when they liberated the Belgian village of Erquelinnes from German soldiers after more than four years of occupation.
