After the Great War
This page will follow up Berkshire's military history after The Great War and route you to a variety of sections as follows:-


8360 War Memorials

Many communities set up war memorials to men from their area who died in the Boer War and generally these are the first to list ordinary soldiers. There had been, and still are, memorials erected by families to commemorate family members who served; but it was the aftermath of the Great War which saw almost every town, village and church set up a memorial to its sons. At the same time the Imperial (later Commonwealth) War Graves Commission was charged with commemorating every military person who died with either a grave headstone or on a memorial if his place of burial was not known. Their charge was extended to the Second World War later.
