Our Boys - Ware Men in the First World War, by Derek Armes

Published by Rockingham Press and the Ware Museum, 104 pages. Paperback (N5272)

This book provides a fascinating account of how the First World War touched the small Hertfordshire town of Ware. Six hundred and fifty Ware men voluteered or were conscripted during the conflict and a third of them were killed, with 220 lives lost over the course of the war. Almost every family lost a son, husband or other relative and every street in the town was affected by the deaths of neighbours.

Most of the men from Ware were members of the 1st Battalion of the Hertfordshire Regiment (Teritorials), who went to France in November 1914 and was one of the first Territorial units to see action, and this book tells their story of comradeship, love and loss from the point of view of the soldiers and their families.

The book is illustrated throughout with around 20 black and white photographs and five maps.
