Answering the Call: Auchencairn and the First World War
Nottingham, Dander Publishing. 2009, 1st Edition. Black Boards, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. There are eighteen men named on the village war memorial and seventeen men with links to Auchencairn who are commemorated on memorials elsewhere. However, many stories tell of those wounded in action, while others relate the deeds of those recognised for gallantry in the field or meritorious service towards the war effort. In all, more than 150 men and women from Auchencairn served during WW1; a complete nominal roll details each person's connection to Auchencairn, along with a summary of their war service. The book is arranged by 'theatre of war', with each set of stories placed in context by an introduction summarising that particular period and area of the war. The stories include a number for gallantry and meritorious service, including a knighthood for services on behalf of fellow prisoners of war, a Tank Corps officer's Military Cross and Bar, a Distinguished Conduct Medal (KOSB) and five Military Medals - two with the Glasgow Highlanders (1/9th HLI) and one each with the Machine Gun Corps, Royal Army Medical Corps and Royal Engineers. Nicely put together and well illustrated. 246 pages. As new. Fine/Fine.
