Khaki in colour and sombre in content. "Cravens Part in the Great War", there will not have been many households in Barlick and what was then a much larger Craven Area, that did not have at least one copy of this book. In my immediate Family there would have been at least four and I still have two of them, albeit that one is with my son on Anglesey. Over the years I have seen them at jumble sales, in second hand shops and in piles of rubbish for disposal, even left behind when a house has been vacated. They will have turned up all over the place, I have come across them in Wales, the Isle of Wight and Hampshire, the two that I have belonged to my Father and Maternal Grandfather.
Many years ago I went through one of them from cover to cover noting those from Barlick who had given their lives in the service of King and Country, my notes are long gone so I am going to do it again, a few pages at a time, but this time I will include other local places within an approximate seven mile radius, Gisburn, Foulridge, Earby and so on. I will post my findings on here with the name, address and a precis of other details, as some are quite extensive, each name is to have the page number for my reference so that if anyone wants further information, I can soon find it. In a good number of cases there is a photograph, these I will copy and post in groups of ten at suitable intervals. In the book there are 391 pages so I will use a few abreviations hopefully all self explanatory, ie, KIA:- Killed in Action. MPD:- Missing presumed Dead. DOW:- Died as a result of Wounds, and one that is all too frequent, DFD:- Died from Disease or Illness.
One Man was responsible for the existance of these books and that was Mr, Walter Morrison Esq, JP of Malham Tarn who put forward the idea of the book and defrayed the entire cost.
There is quite a bit about the war itself up to page 50, including the Rohilla Tradgedy, then comes the dreadful list of those who did not come home, and so it is that on page 57 we find the first of Barlicks Sons, and is as follows:-

2nd Lieut Harry Thornton Pickles, 3rd Bn Duke of Wellington's (West Riding) Regiment (SR) second son of Mr Stephen Pickles JP, CC, Of Raysgill Barnoldswick KIA 26th April 1916 aged 26. P57.

In these first ten pages the extent of family loss is made very clear for it was in the Village of Carleton nr Skipton that this comes up:-

P53,  Lieut. Anthony E.K. Slingsby, 1/6th Duke of Wellington's (WR) Regiment, Son of Mr and Mrs J A Slingsby Carla Beck Carleton. KIA France 14th July 1915. Aged 26.
P57,  Captain Arthur Morris Slingsby, MC 56th Punjabi Rifles,  2nd son of Mr and Mrs J A Slingsby KIA 8th March 1916 in Mesopotamia. Aged 30.
P58.  Lieut. Stephen Slingsby of HMS Defence, 4th son of Mr and Mrs J A Slingsby. KIA in North Sea June 1916. Aged 24.
This out of a total of five sons all serving.
 
Lothersdale is the next local Village with on P62.  Lieut Alec Wilson, 1st Herefordshire Regiment, Son of Mr and Mrs F J Wilson JP of Lothersdale. KIA 26th March 1917 in Egypt.
P54, Lieut. The Hon, C. A. Lister Royal Marines, Hood Battalion, Only surviving son and heir of Lord Ribblesdale of Gisburne Park DOW 28th August 1915. Elder Brother killed in 1904 in Somaliland.
Greystones, Gisburn.  Lieut. George Proctor, Lancs Fusiliers, only son of Mr and Mrs Thomas Proctor. KIA 7th April 1918 aged 24. P70.
Marton is on P73, Which Marton is not clear,  2nd Lieut, Joseph Bryan Bushby South Staffs Regiment, son of Mr and Mrs Joseph Bushby, Schoolhouse Farm Marton, DOW, 4th October 1918 aged 26.

"Dear Madam, - I regret having to confirm the report of the death of Pte. T. Clapham. He was killed instantly on the 2nd inst. by a trench mortar bomb. I am unable to give you further details as his platoon officer is away from the Battalion at present. It was impossible to wire confirmation, as the telegraph is not available to us.

SERGEANT ALEC CLARK, Devonshire Regt., of 2, King Street, Barnoldswick, killed in action 2nd October, 1917. Aged 27 years.

Article Date: 26 October 1917
BARNOLDSWICK - THE LATE SERGEANT CLARK
A letter received this week from the Rev. S. C. Crosse (Chaplain) confirms an earlier unofficial report of the death of Sergt. Abe Clark, Devonshire Regiment, whose home was at 2, King Street, Barnoldswick. He was killed by a shell on his way up to his position on October 2nd. Sergeant Clark was 27 years of age, and leaves a wife but no children. He had spent a year and ten months in France, returning thither after a short leave three months ago. A native of Heysham, he had lived in Barnoldswick about six years, and before joining the Army was employed as a warehouseman at Messrs. Edmondson & Co.'s Fernbank Shed. In his letter to the bereaved wife, the chaplain writes:- "It will, I feel sure, be some consolation to you to know that by the sacrifice of his life he helped considerably towards the complete success of the battle fought at that time. He has not died in vain, and deeply as I know you most feel his death, you must, I think, feel also a great pride that he should have given his life for the freedom of the world."

Its a digital collage Heather, put together this morning from bits and pieces that I have. The background is a modern day field in Flanders and of course the memorial bits are our memorial here in Barlick. The Soldier is Pte. John Varley culled from the internet.

It doesn't matter how many times I have seen it, or how hardened a person can become through life, there are still things that can bring tears, and tears that just keep on coming. I cannot remember watching a Festival of Remembrance when this has not happened. The feeling and emotions brought on by the Band of the Royal Marines opens the tear ducts, and I think of the times when I have been in the company of these truly magnificent men. "Bootnecks" we used to call them. I have had them "Encouraging" me around assault courses, listened to their musical expertise at Colsus in Norway, Big swing band down to jazz quartet, marched behind them on divisions and had them for company on a difficult covert operation through Vietnam and into Cambodia, and thankfully back again. And then came the young War Widows, what can I say, my eyes are sore and bloodshot. My excuse is that I am damn proud of this country and what it stands for. There has for a long time been a culture of Britain Bashing, what we did wrong, and manifold other things we are labeled with, but at the end of the day a lot of people around the globe have benefited in some way from what we have done or tried to do. And the cost has been high, at times horrific. So when we moan about our lot, about cuts, and all the other inconveniences, remember, that for the right to complain and air our grievances, there were many who forfitted everything for our benefit.
