of August 2014 marked the centenary of the outbreak of World War One.
The North Hill Local History group
prepared a book, ”The
Fallen of North Hill Parish”, to remember the men and the woman
with connections to the parish who lost their lives in this conflict. This
book is packed with biographical details of the fallen showing you their
life stories, images and connections with North Hill, Coad’s Green and
other places in and around the parish. It has been researched and written
by local people about local people.
Copies of the book are still available by contacting the
Chair of our Group at the address at the foot of this page, but hurry as
supplies are running out. Information that has been discovered since it was
first published, can be found on this website by accessing the named
casualties on the Roll of Honour.
The book was launched on 3rd
August 2014 at a presentation, display and book launch at North Hill
Village Hall. Images of the day and the posters used can be seen below.
Posters include some moving stories and posters about ‘our’ casualties and
World War One.
The book is priced “At Least £3” and proceeds from the
sale of the book are donated to the Royal British Legion (Launceston). We
are grateful to the North Hill Parish Council who funded this venture.
