Cookham homes sought for First World War soldiers

Around 100 houses in Cookham are receiving letters telling them that one of the 'sons of Cookham' killed in the First World War used to live in their house.  The book about these men (and boys) - We Will Remember Them - is now on sale at the Stationery Depot in Station Parade, Cookham Rise.  As well as giving profiles of 113 men whose names are on local war memorials, or who are known to have connections with Cookham, the 180-page paperback provides an address list for all of the houses in which they or their families lived.

The books are priced at 7 and have been 'flying off the shelf'.  A reprint is already being planned in order to have enough copies available at events around the centenary of the Armistice on 11th November.  If anyone wants a copy but can't get to the Stationery depot they can order one via
