Dearest Mother, just a line hoping you are well, as I am pleased to say I am. We are having awful weather just now. We are having a hundred wounded in here today from Verdun. Can you find me in the photo and let me know how you think I look.

From your loving Son - Watson.

WORLD WAR 1

& the People of the Parish

Photographs, documents, maps, archived materials and other insights into the lives of the families and the men from the Parish who lost their lives in the 1914-1918 War.

These trails will guide you around the Parish using our Public Footpath network. There are 6 Trails which take in the homes of each of the men named on the war memorials and their families. You will walk in the footsteps of those gone before, exploring the landscape of the Parish and its WW1 heritage.

A number of short films capturing family and community memories, stories and anecdotes relating to WW1 and the People of The Parish.


Contact us and take part. You can make additions to the Parish WW1 archive with your own materials, insights & connections. info@kingsburytimetravellers.org.uk

We will remember them . . .
