WW1 Memorial

In November 2016 John Parker presented to us a copy of his book “WW1 Memorial, Hambleton” which is “dedicated to all those local men who went to fight ‘For King and Country’ between 1914 and 1918 but particularly the eleven who did not return”.

By kind permission of the Author, a black and white copy of this colour publication is available to view using the following links:
