As   part   of   the   community   Bere   14-18   Commemorations,   a   small   team   is   researching   the   lives   of   the   301   men   of   our   three   local   parishes   (Bere Regis   (205),   Winterborne   Kingston   (64)   & Affpuddle   /Turnerspuddle   (32))   who   served   in   the   forces   in   the   Great   War.   Their   names   are   listed   below.   If you   think   you   are   a   descendent   of   any   of   the   men   listed   and   may   have   some   family   or   service   history   or   mementoes   (Photos,   medals,   service papers, cuttings, etc ) about them, could you kindly contact Philip Ventham on 01929 471215 We   would   be   very   pleased   to   speak   with   you. Any   information,   however   insignificant,   is   of   interest   as   very   often,   family   recollections   can   fill   gaps in the official records.
