When I started researching this project I perhaps naively never thought that my enquiries would be met with such enthusiasm but today again proved what a passion there is for keeping these memories alive. Tutbury Museum is small but filled with local history including the Fauld disaster. The Gypsum mine adjacent to RAF Fauld was flooded after the explosion causing many fatalities here is a snapshot of some of the museum's gypsum artefacts. My real purpose here was to explore some of their archives and uncover some more history about the personal losses to local families. I get the feeling that even after all these years, some are reluctant to pass on their memories. They are perhaps still too painful for those who are now in their latter years, and best left forgotten. Rather that some morose regurgitating of historic facts I would like my exhibition to be a proud remembrance of those who lost their lives.
