Weybridge Surrey Men Who Served in The Great War – Magnificent Book In Surrey History Centre Woking
Edited in affectionate remembrance of those who gave their lives and in gratitude to All.
It has over 60 pages of information containing the Roll of the Men (residents or employed) in Weybridge who volunteered prior to November 1915 and served in the First World War.
From the photos received, it appears to have 28 pages for the Royal Navy and 30 pages for The Army (Infantry) and further sections for Weybridge men serving in Australian and other overseas forces. The Air Force appears to not be included in this document.
We advised him that the best place for this valuable historical document to be kept would be the Surrey History Centre in Woking, since they have the facilities for people to be allowed to view it, whereas Elmbridge Museum is now a virtual Museum. This recommendation was confirmed by both Elmbridge Museum and Surrey History Centre, where it is now held.
An extract from the letter we received is as follows:
This book must have taken hours to make as you can see, and I am anxious for it to be held by someone in Weybridge and area who will appreciate its historical value.
Can you help me find a new owner for it please?”
