Book Reviews

“I would like to say that I think they have done an outstanding job. I think the Parish should be very proud of the publication and on my behalf of the Parish Council, I would like to say a big Thank You”. Brian Ruby, Chairman of North Hill Parish Council

“As Secretary of the Launceston Branch of the Royal British Legion, I was most impressed by the research and depth of feeling shown in this commemorative booklet, and am sure that it will mean a great deal to the families of the ‘Fallen’ in the parish. As well as dealing with the welfare of those who have returned from warfare, the Legion considers itself the ‘Custodian of Remembrance’, and I am so pleased that others are helping us in this task, for ‘We Will Remember Them!’”. Ann Gynn, Secretary of the Launceston Branch of the Royal British Legion.

“In producing the book, the History Group have shown their dedication and tenacity for research. They have also afforded us Parishioners an opportunity to learn more about the men [and woman] from North Hill who sacrificed their lives”. Carleton Mayer, Editor of the North Hill Parish Magazine
