It is true that Park Street in Crediton is long and winding and it is also true that, in the early years of the 20th century, many houses were occupied by more than one family, producing a high residency figure but even so, this list of men from one street who were serving their country in 1915 is quite amazing. There are no less than 56 names on it  including at least one father and son - 55 soldiers and 1 sailor in all.

The list was published in the Crediton Chronicle on 26 June 1915.
