Narrated by GF on behalf of History West Midlands (see Links) this is the tale of arguably the most iconic piece of Roman cameo glass ever made and of its more recent recreation by Stourbridge glassmaking artisans.
There was a surprise in store and a step back in time for those crossing the charming Whitney Bridge near the Herefordshire - Powys border where they were greeted by a WWI Guard of Honour. It was all part of the campaign to raise awareness and monies for the A.L Lewis Memorial Fund, Herefordshire's only local-born VC hero. And it worked - there is now a statue of the man in the centre of Hereford. More at Links and Pics.
