The Bunting Cross is an original cross from the first World War, used to identify Donald Bunting who died 1915 in the trenches. Donald was a local boy and the cross is quite a rarity. The painting that forms the backdrop for the cross is acrylic on canvas, 1200 x 950mm.

The display case in which the cross was kept had been devoid of any information, part of my brief was to provide some relevant, interesting facts. Swaffham Museum re-opens on Monday 17th May 2021 when the completed display cabinet will be seen for the first time. Swaffham Museum 4 London Street Swaffham Norfolk PE37 7DQ Opening times 10.00 - 5.00 every day except Sunday.
