Six Weeks: The Short and Gallant Life of the British Officer in the First World War - by John Lewis-Stempel
If you, like me, have a fascination of the generation of the young men who became officers in the Great War. Then this remarkable book, by John Lewis-Stempel will tell you all about these forgotten men who truly won Britain's victory in the First World War.
Nicholas Clayton Marsh, elder son of Kenrick Clayton Marsh of Hoylake, was born on November 14, 1895, and was killed in action at Cuinchy, in the Battle of Loos, on September 25, 1915.
After the Great War many Rolls of Honour were produced to remember the dead. I shall be listing extracts from these rolls to illustrate the individual stories of many that died during the conflict.
