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.

One of Four Soldier Brothers
Mr. and Mrs. C. Milner, Hawes, have received the sad news that their son, Lance-Corporal Carl Dugdale Milner, London Regiment, was killed in action on August 22nd. The news was conveyed from a comrade who speaks in high terms of the great esteem in which the young soldier was held by all officers and men. He was killed whilst engaged in a very difficult operation. Corporal Carl Milner was 30 years of age and joined up in January, 1917, and was posted to the R.F.C., now the R.A.F. He was afterwards transferred to the Tanks, and then to the London Regiment. He went overseas six months ago. At the age of 17 he entered the London Joint Stock Bank at Rotherham. He was afterwards employed at Richmond, Selby, Settle and Durham, and finally became manager of the Barnoldswick Bank at the early age of 27, from which place he joined up. The greatest regret at his death is felt by all who knew him. Mr. and Mrs. Milner have two other sons in the overseas forces and third in training.

Mitton, recently fallen in their country's service, was conducted at Hawes Parish Church, on Sunday afternoon by the Vicar, the Rev. S. D. Crawford. There were special psalms, and the hymns were 'On the Resurrection morning,' 'Peace, perfect peace,' and 'Now the labourer's task is o'er.' The Vicar based an appropriate address on the words, 'O death, where is thy sting?' and after the Benediction the draped Union Jack was held at the chancel steps by Cadet Lance-Corporal H. Wilson, whilst the Dead March was played on the organ by Mrs. Place and the 'Last Post' sounded by Mr. J. Blades.

"British Expeditionary Force, March 9th, 1917
"Dear Mrs. Mitchell, - As the officer in command of 'A' Company at the time of your husband's death I just want to tell you what a topping good soldier he was, in addition to which he was of tremendous assistance to the battalion when working at his trade.
"We were ordered to advance on a German position, and when going across the open we came under the fire of a machine gun and several snipers. Your husband was hit in the head. We got him into a trench, but he died without recovering consciousness about two hours later. He was in no pain at any time.
"We all, officers and men, miss your husband no end. He was such a jolly good fellow.
"Sincerely Yours, DUDLEY F. HAZALL"

BARNOLDSWICK - YOUNG SOLDIER'S DEATH AT A TRAINING CAMP
The death took place on the 22nd ult., at the New Military Hospital, Cannock Chase, Staffs., of Private James Norcross, K.O.Y.L.I., fifth son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Norcross, 23 Wellhouse Square, Barnoldswick. Deceased, who was three months short of 19 years of age, joined the Colours in November last, and was first taken ill in February with a severe attack of meningitis, in which he lingered in a precarious condition for a considerable time. He made progress, however, down to about a month ago and had recovered the partial use of his limbs when the malady suddenly returned on him and terminated fatally. The remains were brought home for interment at Gill Church on Friday last, the service being conducted by the Rev. J. Lord (curate). The sad event has evoked much sympathy with the bereaved parents, whose four other sons are all serving: two in France, one at Beverley, and another (now home on leave) in Mesopotamia.

Article Date: 18 July 1919
NORCROSS - To the ever dear memory of Private Jim Norcross, K.O.Y.L.I., son of William Norcross, of Barnoldswick, died at Cannock Chase New Military Hospital, July 22nd, 1918.
"Worthy of Everlasting Love."

He went out to France in December last, and was invalided home with trench fever in February. Since returning to France in September he has been attached to the Royal Engineers. He was 38 years of age and leaves a wife and one daughter, seven years old. A nursing sister at the Casualty Clearing Station states that Private Nutter had sustained compound fractures of the right thigh and right arm, besides other injuries, and was too ill to realise that he was dying. He was buried with military honours, along with many of his comrades. Prior to joining the Army, Pte. Nutter was employed by Messrs. J. Nutter and Sons, Bankfield Shed. He was an enthusiastic musician and a member of the Barnoldswick Orchestra, in which he played the cello.

A LOCAL SOLDIER'S DEATH
News was received yesterday morning from a fellow soldier at the Front that Mr. J.W. O'Hara, a private in the 1st Yorkshire Light Infantry, and formerly of Barnoldswick, has been killed in action.
