The painting was donated to Darwen Corporation in 1920 by ‘an anonymous friend’, in memory of all the Darwen men who were killed in the Great War and was on display in Darwen’s reference library for over 50 years before being moved in 1974. The Friends of Darwen Library will unveil the large painting at a coffee morning in the library, all welcome – admission free.
