Minster Lovell: Those who Served 1914-1945
Minster Lovell: Those who Served 1914-1945

Book by Sue Honoré 2016

This new book captures the stories of a rapidly disappearing generation. It describes those people who lived in the village or who were associated with the village in the twentieth century, who served in the military. It covers both those who died in service and those who came home. The book is lavishly illustrated with unique photos and includes both the military and the family history of those documented. It also contains vivid personal stories of their military experience. Although centred around the two World Wars, the book extends into the 1950s and back to the nineteenth century.
