Recently we were asked if any work had been done on the biographies of the people named on the war memorial. Enquiries have failed to turn up any such work - does anyone know of any? If some of us research the biographies of those on the war memorials of the SO24 District, is there anyone who would like to join the project? Does anyone know anyone who can help with memories of the fallen? The idea would be to remember these people in life, rather than merely set down the military records:

"We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields. "
