Lustleigh and the First World War

To commemorate the centenary of the First World War volunteers involved with the Lustleigh Community Archive decided to research what village life was like during the war years and the lives of those who served. This book brings together the wealth of material that was uncovered and reveals a unique picture of what life was like in a small village on the edge of Dartmoor a hundred years ago. Although there was frustration over wartime shortages and government regulations, people were concerned about what was happening in the War. There was a determination that life should, as far as possible, go on as normal whilst villagers played their part in the War effort through fund raising, collections and hospitality.
Also included is the full Roll of Honour compiled by the Rector of Lustleigh in the 1920s, of the men and one woman, who served during the War.
