"Lest We Forget"

This series of books, produced by The Heritage Forum of North West Leicestershire, commemorates the Fallen of the many villages in the District. The names of the men who gave their lives have been researched by members of the Forum and other Volunteers. Each book covers a cluster of villages within the District and records account of the men who responded to the call to defend our country.
The books honour the men and are dedicated to their memory.
