The Mayor and Mayoress of Chorley visited Galloway’s Society for the Blind in Chorley, to unveil a special plaque commemorating all those who gave their lives during the First World War.

The plaque was designed and made by service users from Galloway’s, including those that are severely sight impaired, and one blind veteran, and shows blinded soldiers being guided, war horse lead ambulance, bullets water carriers and a First World War soldier and soldiers in the trenches.

Many of those who fought in the war were not killed but came home with visual impairments caused by the gas and shell attacks.
