Lest We Forget
by Stephen Wright.
To celebrate 100 years after the Armistice following the Great War, this booklet records the local men who lost their lives in the conflict and whose names are recorded on the village memorials. Details of their family backgrounds and extracts from regimental records illustrate this tragic episode in history.
