A big part of our project is identifying people from the Corsham area who were involved in the First World War. Most recently, we have learnt about the story of Henry Luke Williams, thanks to his son, Gordon.

The Imperial War Museum is running a similar project, which you can read more about here.

Our aim is to find out about the people behind the names, to share their stories, and remember their contribution.
