The Story of Areley Kings and World War 1

Edited by Bill Wood

This is a downloadable pdf file (approx. 6MB, 145 pages)

The Great War affected every part of society in the country, and the village of Areley Kings was no exception. A peaceful

and settled community, the village experienced the huge changes made by the demands of a nation at war. Not only did it

send many of its sons into combat, but at home there was also great participation in the war effort. From supporting a local

hospital and giving a home to refugees, to providing clothing and comforts for troops and participating in essential war work –

everyone had their part to play. This book looks at life in the village before the conflict, tells the story of the people during the

war years and catalogues the men who went to fight and those who died. Enhanced with over 80 illustrations of people, places

and wartime life, The Story of Areley Kings and World War I presents a unique picture of the effects of war on the everyday life

of a small community.
