The things you see!

The face is familiar....


The First World War was a turning point in world history. It claimed the lives of over 16 million people across the globe and had an impact on the lives of everyone. One hundred years on, we are all connected to the First World War, either through our own family history, the heritage of our local communities or because of its long term impact on society and the world we live in today.

Across the world, nations, communities and individuals of all ages will come together to commemorate the lives of those who lived, fought and died in the First World War.

Do you or your family have a World War 1 story to share with the community? Perhaps you have photographs, medals or memorabilia you’d like to share on this page.

    My maternal Grandfather William James Green was I believe the first Leicestershire Man to lose his life in the Great War. He was killed on 10th October 1914 while serving with the 18th Hussars having enlisted before the outbreak of the War. I have compiled a short history of his service which I would be willing to share with others but I would like to know how a young man from Earl Shilton came to be serving with a crack cavalry regiment. My paternal grandfather John Edwin Olive, of Cosby was also killed in the war, being one of the very last to lose his life, just weeks before the conflict ended. I have produced a small booklet on these two men which I would share with those interested.
