BICKLEIGH MEN SERVING IN THE FORCES IN 1915

 

This list was published in the Crediton Chronicle on 23 January 1915. The note at the end reads:

"Several of those mentioned, though intimately associated with Bickleigh, do not reside in the parish."

 

There was no conscription until 1916.

These men are being honoured because they were volunteers
