"The fighters of the county of Silves in World War I" is an exhibition that will cover all the parishes of the county. In the month of May and until the 31st, this exhibition will be open to the public in the Assembly Hall of the Parish Council of Alcantarilha.
Organized by the Municipal Council of Silves, through the Municipal Archives, this exhibition is the result of the survey of all the silvenses that participated in the First World War and which, as part of the Portuguese Expeditionary Body, were mobilized to France.
A list is drawn up, divided by the parishes, which includes the name of the combatant, rank and service that he performed, the date of embarkation and disembarkation in Lisbon and observations such as whether he received praises, whether he was medalist and decorated, if he participated in the Battle of La Lys and still died in combat.
In the month of June the exhibition will be visible in the Assembly Hall of the Parish Council of Pêra.
