Oldbury reader praises our 'impressive' WW1 book

A READER has written to The Bugle thanking us for our "impressive and well-compiled" First World War book which brought back memories of his grandfather.

Robert Shaw, of 76 Warley Road, Oldbury, said: "As I have an ardent interest in the First World War, I purchased your We Will Remember Them. I was very impressed and found it an enlightening read and very well compiled. I could relate to at least one article by Doug Lewis, with his transcript of the War Diary, about the 9th South Staffs. It was this conflict, although not this regiment, that my grandfather was critically wounded by machine gun fire to both legs on October 1, 1916, and died in No. 6 General Hospital, Rouen, on October 3, 1916."

We Will Remember Them consists of 96 colour pages and tells the Great War stories of dozens of Black Country men and women on the front line and on the Home Front and is packed with more than 120 stories, plus pictures.

It would make an ideal and not too expensive gift for Father's Day on Sunday, June 15. We will post the book direct for £4.95, with free postage within the UK. Call The Bugle on 01384 567678.
