    The following article has been sent in by Mark Medler of Allison Street. A little piece of Marsham history.

    On a cold, wintry morning with a weak sun fighting a losing battle, a piece of history was recreated in Marsham. Sunday February 28th 2016 was the 40th anniversary of the death of one of Marsham’s old characters, Charlie "Peace" Medler born in 1900. He farmed a large piece of the allotment in the village growing potatoes, spring cabbage, wallflowers and "The Norfolk Apple" the turnip, which his grandson Mark still eats raw today after

     being given them by him many years ago at the age of 8. Chickens and rabbits took up some of the land too. Last year Mark acquired a 1941 British Anzani Iron Horse, the only working model he could find in the UK, in

    memory of his grandad Charlie who used one on his land until he was well into his seventies.

    So it was on this Sunday morning that Charlies daughter Sylvia Long of Le Neve Road, grandchildren Marty Long, Maureen Glenn and Mark Medler and great grandchildren, Billy, John and George Medler and great great grandchildren, Callum, Liam and Rosabella recreated this moment along with a toast of Rum, Charlie’s favourite tipple. The plan was to plough an area that was used by Charlie. Mark and his sons as well as cousin Marty took

    turns to try and use the iron horse but found it to be very difficult and hard work and marvelled that a man in his seventies was able to use one without difficulty. They were certainly made of sterner stuff in them days!! The morning brought back fond memories of those who remembered Charlie "Peace" Medler A special thanks to Duddy Gladden for transporting the Iron Horse to the allotments and also to Graham Payne for allowing us to use the land.
