Great War West Sussex 1914-18

John Barnes: Shot at dawn

When war was over and thousands of men didn’t return, most villages erected memorials in their honour. However, one mother from Littlehampton had to campaign to see her son's name engraved on her local memorial.

A range of original sources such as images, army records, newspaper articles and postcards will encourage students to research and evaluate sources in order to discover why a mother had to campaign for her son's name to be engraved on the memorial.

The Library Service is very grateful to the Barnes family and Nick Ward, for supplying the documents and information used in this learning resource.
