This book is not intended to be a history of either Lymington or of the two World Wars. After a lapse of nearly 95 years in some cases, the memory of the names recorded on the War Memorial are in danger of becomong dim. This book therefore is an attempt to reverse this trend.
We have tried, where possible, to establish the individual link with Lymington. An explanation is then offered of where and why the serviceman died. The framework of the appropriate miltary action is given for clarity, but such are limited to those relevant to the Lymington men concerned.
It matters not whether these men died in action, in Prisoner of War camps, or in hospital from wounds or sickness. They died whilst in uniform in the service of their country . We owe them a great debt.
The least we can do is to remember them.
