The Men of Yaxham who Fell in WW1

Almost one hundred years after the beginning of the first world war, local historian Daryll Banyard has compiled a brief history of the ten men from Yaxham who died in that conflict. Using various sources, Daryll has pieced together pieces of the lives of these men, and the circumstances in which they were killed in action in battles across the western world world - from the infamous killing fields in France and Belgium to the mysterious dissapearance of members of the Norfolk regiment in Turkey to a 1,000 mile march across modern day Iraq.
