Overview
-

‘This is a remarkable account of a village’s contribution to probably the most appalling war that there has ever been and to those who were in the Second World War, it brings home to how much more terrible was the 1914-18 War. It must have been a Herculean task to assemble all the data, photographs and memorabilia and I only write to congratulate you on what is remarkable achievement.’ Lord Carrington
