The thieving so and so, hope their fingers burn and drop off.

Remember the museum displays that were in the upstairs rooms in the hall years ago, there was a lot of WW1 and other war militaria on display, I know that a lot of the items belonged to George Darbyshire a one time teacher at Pemberton, he was a keen collector of military items and very knowledgeable about them too.
