Dear Sir,

As part of the build up towards the centenary of World War I, Aycliffe Village Local History Society are trying to gather information on anyone involved in the Great War.

We would love to hear from any resident of Newton Aycliffe, Aycliffe Village and School Aycliffe who had relations from this time. It is our hope to stage an exhibition in 2014 to commemorate this conflict.

Did any of your relatives serve in the First World War?

If so we would love to hear from you with:

Their names, photos, Service Records, Medals, Memorabilia and any other information would be great!

Please contact us on our website or telephone Harry Moses 321773; David Lewis 319196; Vivien Ellis 318602.
