A Tribute to the
Men of Gourdon, 1914-18
Those who died, those who survived: World War One, 1914-18
As part of a Museum Open Day held in the Gourdon Burgh Hall in November 2018 commemorating the centenary of Armistice Day, Celia Craig compiled information and stories of the lives of some of the men of Gourdon during the Great War.
This information has since been collated into a single document and is presented here: our thanks to Celia for her permission to allow us to share it with you.
