A wonderful tribute by the management of the Black Bull. When I'm next passing I'll pop in and congratulate them! Anyone want to join me?

When these were up a couple of years ago, I told my friend, who lived in London at the time, as his Uncle's name is on from the First World War. Unfortunately, by the time he visited Wigan they had been taken down, but the people in the Black Bull went to the trouble of getting the appropriate flag out so they my friend could photograph his Uncle's name.

The flags have been there for quite a long while now, it was the previous tenant of the pub that put then there a landLADY.

What a sensitive thing to do. How kind & thoughtful.

Sorry Jonno, I really meant well done to the person responsible, the landlord or landlady. No offence meant.

No offence taken Aubrey, the comment wasn't aimed at you, i was just putting the record straight.

There are now plaques on the wall inside the pub near the pool table that have all the names on as well. Nice touch
