Hope you find my site informative I have a guestbook and email link at the bottom of each page if you wish to comment or contact me.
I am local to Bidford-on-avon and have lived here for over 37 years. This website has been live since 2006 (upgraded in 2015), whilst I have made every effort to be accurate in my research if I have made mistakes it is not intended to offend. If the relatives of the fallen men who gave their lives in the Great War wish me to remove or update their details please don’t hesitate to contact me (email address at bottom of page), this also applies to any parade photos.
My research is mostly based on historical facts and educated speculation where the men’s regiments and division might have been when they were killed or wounded with some information taken from the web. I have personally visited the battle fields in France and Belgium. If I have breached anyone’s copyright I apologise and will remove or credit if mutually agreed, I must also say this is a none profit making site and is solely for historical research and for the men to be remembered not just as a name on a plague but for the sacrifice they made for us all.
