 As with all of the casualties we list on these pages we really know very little of the men and women whose names we honour here.   They had jobs, skills, hobbies, and families.  They were civilians in the main, most of whom had never before travelled beyond the local market town.  They exchanged letters with parents and siblings from which they had never before been parted until their “great adventure” as soldiers.  And they had photographs taken of themselves in uniform. 

While it is appreciated that the intervening years have shaded the knowledge we would like, we are hopeful that in many households there will still be medals, documents, and mementoes relating to a half-forgotten ancestor.    Please share your knowledge with us whether that is of a relative who lies in a far-away grave or of someone who survived to return to a grateful family.
