As a result of the research for the other topic "Barlick and Cravens Part in the Great War" some interesting material has emerged First and foremost are the names of Men from Barlick who are not included on the Town War Memorial. Just what qualifies a name to appear on there is difficult to establish and I started out with a list of 39 possibles, this is now down to 37 as two names are indeed already on the monument. "To err is human". There are five that meet my criteria, four born and resident in Barlick and one born in Salterforth and it is possible that he lived in Barlick, he may be on the Salterforth Memorial, this I have to check. One of the five is a Young Man who died in the canal at Skipton, The Coroners verdict was suicide, but the mans state of mind could not be established, he was still a Soldier, Born, and a resident of Barlick and buried at Ghyll I believe that whatever the cause he has a right to recognition. I have had a great deal of help and support in my endeavours from Mr Chris Foster of CPGW and I feel sure he will have a valuable input to make with this new topic. I would also like to hear what the Townsfolk have to say, and with the possibility of a publication in the future I may have a word with a contact at the BET Newspaper, somebody out there may know something useful, and so to the first five names and unedited details:-

I have a fair collection of books that deal with many aspects of Warfare, many are to do with the hardware, others are about the men who were successful in using what was available and many are about the Men who did their best to get the job done and try to stay alive. One book is called "Forgotten voices of the Great War" by Max Arthur. This book contains memoirs and letters written from that time. I also have "The Last Fighting Tommy", the story of Harry Patch, and some of his memories are included in the former book. But, I now have a good number of stories here that are not in books as such, these are from letters that our Barlick Lads sent home, and shortly I will post some of them in a new topic possibly the final chapter until we have done what must be tried, and failure, as it was for those brave men, is not an option. The new topic will be:- "The Stories of WW1" this is material written mostly by Barlickers with the inclusion of letters written by others about Barlick Men.
