Quorn Soldiers who died in WW1

2014 marks one hundred years since the start of the First World War. Quorn lost 79 of its young men during this period, which represented 15% of the male population of Quorn aged between 16 and 45. That is a staggering three out of every twenty men in this age group.

The museum team are trying to research and collect as much information as possible about these brave soldiers who died, so that they are not forgotten by future generations. We are appealing for any photographs of them that may be tucked away in drawers. Can you possibly help?

This article appeared in the Quorndon Magazine in Summer 2013.
