Our Longboats!

April 27, 2015 | Comments Off on Our Longboats!

These Longboats took us awhile to make as we had to collect 28 milk cartons over a few weeks but we did it and here are our master pieces!!

Jake wrote this piece to remember his Great Grandad, John Donnelly, who came from Balrothery.

John had also scratched his initials and his soldier number […]
