2014 - Rushden Research ‘Hearts & Soles’ War Memorial Book
This year being the Centenary Commemoration of the start of WWI, we have compiled a database of all the Rushden ‘Memorial Men’ (420) and have had a booklet printed. The details of each man, his age, parents, birth place, employer, rank, service number, regiment, and the place of burial are given. Some tables by age at death, place of birth, employment, and regiment follow the main list. At the back there is a list by age at death, and a list by date of death. Several names of men not on the War Memorial but with a connection to Rushden, and those commemorated elsewhere are also listed. Finally a list of the WWII names (123), and other names on the War Memorial, with brief details of each man, is also included. (60pp)
This is a tribute to all our ‘Memorial Men’ who paid the ultimate price for the freedom of the many.
