“We will remember them”, but remember whom? How can we remember men of the ‘lost generation’ whom we have never met, even if they were members of our own families? Some of the surnames are familiar to us today, for descendants or other family members still live in the locality. It is unlikely, though, that anyone living today remembers the men behind the names on the Bridgham and Roudham War Memorial. All we can do is hold them in remembrance, which is not quite the same thing.

David, your email address in the left-hand column is truncated - should you put it somewhere else where the whole address can be seen?

I shall certainly not forget all the brave boys from Bridgham who laid down their lives to thwart Kaiser Bill's wicked ambitions in Europe
