A BACCHUS MARSH WORLD WAR 1 SUPPER CLOTH
This hand-embroidered portion of a linen supper cloth is an interesting donation from the Van Alkemade family that is being researched at present by members of the Blacksmith and Forge Group of Volunteers.
World War 1 Bacchus Marsh enlisted men and their families are the common theme that has been embroidered skilfully with white cotton and amazing needle skills on a piece of linen. This portion came about as the original supper cloth was raffled, won and then donated back to the fund raising group. The cloth was then divided into squares and sold to the members. The Van Alkemade family came by their portion in this manner.
