Village project to remember First War World veterans

To mark the centenary of the armistice a small village in Northamptonshire has been researching the lives of the villagers who fought in the First World War.

Warmington sent 135 men to fight in the Great War - 25 did not return. A heavy price for a community of just a few hundred souls to pay, if not unusual in the context of the horrors of World War One.

Two years of painstaking work has gone into researching the lives of all 135 men. Who they were, what did they do before, during and after the war, if they were fortunate enough to survive.

They were mostly ordinary country people, many of them would have been the first of their family to travel abroad.
