Welcome to Stockton and World War One

This blog will chronicle the work I'm doing on my book about the community of Stockton and World War One.

The book will be in two parts. The first part will look at the impact of the war on the close knit community of Stockton and how the community responded to the massive disruption the war

The second part of the book will be biographies of the nearly 300 men and women who served in a variety of military roles during the war. We are hoping to include photographs of as many men and women as possible. We would welcome any contributions of photographs which you may have of World War One service people. We would not require originals but would be happy to get copies. And we would welcome any personal stories of World War One veterans that family may have of soldiers of either their lives before, during or after the war.
