FIRST WORLD WAR GROUP - NORTHAMPTON u3a
Local people went to war and came back to Northampton to die. Men came from all corners of the world, mainly in the First World War, and died in Northampton. Stories Behind The Headstones gives a glimpse into their lives. We tell their stories and bring to the reader the tragedy of that war with families losing up to three sons; women losing husbands and brothers; and one family losing a father in the First World War and his son in the Second World War.
The book is priced at £9.99 and is available from Waterstones in Abington Street and Northampton Museum. It can also be purchased at Northampton u3a meetings in June, and September; the Picnic in August; the WW1 exhibition at St Sepulchre’s Church the weekend of 2nd and 3rd August; Heritage Day on 13th September, and by post from Chase Park Publishing, 10 Highfield Way, Yardley Hastings, NN7 1HQ.
