Because so much new information is being released about the Great War we will need a method to update the stories of the gallant men of Froyle who gave their lives serving their country all those years ago.

This will hopefully be provided by lestweforget.froyle.com, which will also provide links to the research sources that have been used in the writing of the book.

Finally, a reminder that in 10 month’s time we shall be celebrating the Froyle Archive’s 40th Anniversary at our Open Day on Sunday, June 14th in Froyle Village Hall. The theme will be “Lest We Forget, Froyle in the Great War”. More information later!
