Brecon's Fallen in World War I
BLFHS Members Steve Morris and Margaret Davies, together with colleagues from U3A, are producing a brief history of each of the Brecon men who perished in World War One and who are commemorated on the Town's memorials. This will cover the parishes of St John, St Mary and St David.
The information will be collated, published and circulated to churches, schools, museums and others, to enhance our knowledge of those who sacrificed their lives, to ensure they are remembered both now and by future generations, as well as adding to the social history of the period.
If you have any relevant information, documents or pictures we would be very grateful to hear from you.
