About the Event

Part of Harrogate Cenotaph's Centenary Commemoration Event.

A TEENAGER AND HIS TANK NAMED HARROGATE - Robert Ogden, great- great-great-nephew of 2nd Lieutenant Walter Ogden (1898-1917). A cache of correspondence and papers, discovered in the attics during the recent renovations of fifth generation family jewellers ‘Ogden of Harrogate’, provides a fascinating insight into the experience of a front line soldier killed in the Great War, and the family he left behind. All four of company founder James Roberts Ogden’s sons went to war.  While three returned home, Walter, the youngest, was fatally wounded in his tank at the Battle of Cambrai on 1st December.
