Posted on Mon, 13/10/2014 - 9:09am

Launch of a local project to find out more about the impacts of the four-year conflict on life at home - and to find out what happened to each of the 193 men who left the parish to take part in the war.

Launch of a local project to find out more about the impacts of the four-year conflict on life at home - and to find out what happened to each of the 193 men who left the parish to take part in the war.

Each edition of the Parish Magazine from Autumn 2014 to November 2018 will be summarising activities and events of 100 years ago, season by season, as seen through local eyes.

Research coordinated by the Buriton Village Association will be looking at as many sources as possible and we hope that our work will be as accurate as possible. But, almost inevitably, we cannot be absolutely certain about the exact location of any of the men from the parish on the battlefields at any specific time. If we make any errors we apologise and we are always grateful to receive amendments.

If you know of anyone who might be able to help in any way, please let us know via heritage@buriton.org.uk

The first instalment of this project, covering the period August to November 1914, can be downloaded as a pdf document at the foot of this page.
