War Memorial: The Story of a Devon Village’s Sacrifice

Lydford Village War Memorial – the search is on to find descendants in time for unique commemoration on 7th September involving a lecture by renowned author Clive Aslet, in aid of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

The Village of Lydford, on Dartmoor, will – like so many other villages across the UK – gather round their War Memorial this year, 100 years after the start of WWI.

Author, Country Life Editor-at-Large and broadcaster Clive Aslet has written a book about those remembered on Lydford’s monument, sparking a new challenge to find descendants of the fallen. Clive will be hosting a special talk at Exeter University where he will detail the lives lost and the sacrifices made by the Lydford residents during the War.
