World War I brought trauma to families all over the country and Lydiard Tregoze was no exception. Over the course of the war, eighty-four men left their homes and families in this small rural parish to fight against Germany and her allies in Europe. Fourteen died because of the conflict.
This collection brings together photographs, objects, diaries, letters, memorials, and articles that reveal the impact of the war on the community of Lydiard Tregoze. From farmers and labourers to the three St.John brothers at Lydiard House, their lives and stories are interwoven.
