Our project is researching the lives of all the 68 men from the village of Farnhill who volunteered to serve prior to the introduction of mandatory conscription early in 1916.  Of these men, just seven died while on active service during the war.

In this article, published 99 years after the signing of the Armistice, we use Regimental war diaries and contemporary newspaper reports to examine these men’s military careers and look at how and when they died.
