Our project to find out more about the impacts of the four-year conflict on life at home in Buriton – and to find out what happened to each of the 193 men from the parish who took part in the war – continues to make good progress.
Our research is looking at as many sources as possible and is summarising findings, season by season, covering the activities and events of 100 years ago – as seen through local eyes.
- The fourth instalment of this project, covering the period April – June 1915, can be found here
- with the fifth instalment, July – September 1915, here
- and the sixth instalment, October – December 1915, here
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 have made any errors we apologise and we are always grateful to receive amendments. If you know anything extra or are able to help in any other way, please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org
Perhaps you have some family stories of wartime – or letters or diaries which suggest what life was like in this area in those troubled times?
