Limited number of free copies for residents and descendants!
The Ickleton Society will be publishing a fabulous book in November about the 200 or so people we’ve traced who went to war or served in some way on the home front, including the many women who volunteered at the Red Cross Hospital from Ickleton and the neighbouring villages. It will also have background about the village at that time, the local regiments, how men were recruited into the armed forces, what happened to them if they were wounded, the setting up of the Ickleton Red Cross Hospital. It will be illustrated with lots of photographs, information taken from military and Red Cross records and, where we know which battalion men served with, details of the battles they were in.
A few snippets can be seen here to tempt you.
Books must be ordered in advance and will be available to collect from Ickleton Village Hall on Saturday 10 November between 11am and 3pm when there will also be an exhibition about the people featured in the book and the village during WW1. One free copy per Ickleton house. One free copy per family of descendants. Additional copies will be available for purchase (price not yet available).
Please send your name, address, e-mail address, phone number together with your request for a free copy and/or number of copies you might wish to purchase to firstname.lastname@example.org, together with confirmation that you will collect the book on 10 November or let us have details of other arrangements you’ll make to collect the book.
