Hi thought you might be interested to read about how one town reacted to the news of the outbreak of war. This article is based on local newspaper reports for the month of August and shows how the town came to resemble a garrison town for a time
I am also working on creating timelines for events that happened in Bradford over the course of the war they will be added as time permits
If anyone has any other dates that should be entered onto the timeline then please let me know
are you part of thr bradford world war one group ?, their book "bradford in the great war " is very interesting, my friends grandfather was alfred brightrick spence from quarry road heaton, he was a member of the bradford pals battalion and was killed on the first day of the battle of the somme, he is remembered on the thiepval memorial.
