Buriton and WW1: October 1916 to June 1917

By 1st July 2017World War 1

Our project to find out more about the impacts of The Great War on life at home in Buriton – and to find out what happened to each of the men from the parish who took part in the conflict – 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.

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 think that you might be able to help in any way, please let us know via heritage@buriton.org.uk

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?

The latest instalments of our findings are here:

  •   The tenth instalment (October to December 2016) is available here
  •   The eleventh instalment (January to March 1917) is available here
  •   The twelfth instalment (April to June 1917) is available here
