Cornishwoman Alison Pooley and her sister Carmen Saunders at the Armistice Day commemorations at the Town Hall in Estaires, northern France, yesterday. Alison and Carmen were there to mark a 100-year-old friendship. Their grandfather Lesley Pentecost was billeted with the Smagghue family in the town and forged a strong friendship with them. Back home in Cornwall the Pentecost family kept all the letters and photos over the years. Yesterday, 100 years later, they presented an album with them to descendants of the Smagghue family who hosted their grandfather. Background on www.bridging-arts.com
