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.

KAY - In ever loving memory of my dear husband, Gunner Harry Kay. R.G.A., who was killed in action in France Oct. 5th, 1918, aged 35 years.
When alone in my sorrow bitter tears flow,

There stealeth a thought of the sweet long ago,

Unknown to the world he stands by our sides

And whispers these words - death cannot divide.
We pictured his safe returning,

We longed to clasp his hand,

But God has postponed the meeting

Till we meet in the Better Land.
- From his ever loving Wife and Child. 47, Pine Street, Nelson.

We loved him, yes, no tongue can tell

How deep, how dearly and how well;

Christ loved him too and thought it best

To take him home with him to rest.

We never thought when you came home

That you came to say goodbye;

Yon went away so bravely

Not thinking you were to die.

You were not forgotten, our dear lad,

Nor ever shall you be,

As long as life and memory lasts

We will remember thee.
- From Father and Mother. 9, Park Street, Barnoldswick.

PRIVATE LISTER'S LAST LETTER
As briefly announced last week, Private Wm. Lister, 6th Duke of Wellington's, was killed on July 18th. According to a letter from Private Wolfenden of Barnoldswick, who was with him in the trenches, there were three killed and two injured at the same time, Lister being shot through the head. Before joining the Army he worked at Messrs. Bailey and Roberts, Barnsey Shed, and was well known as a footballer and athlete. He was 27 years of age and leaves a widow and one boy (3½ years), who reside at 7 King Street, Barnoldswick.
In his letter dated two days before his death, Private Lister wrote in the following cheerful strain:- "We are in a very warm part of the trenches just now. You will know where we are if you look in next week's 'Pioneer'. I am still in the pink, but we have to skip about pretty lively at times. The Germans are very wide-awake and keep us so too. Never mind, I shall think of you at the seaside and hope you enjoy yourself. I wish this lot was over, but don't see much chance of that yet. P.S.- All the Barlickers are all right yet. We are now where Vincent Eccleston was killed."

Article Date: 21 July 1916
LISTER - In loving memory of Private William Lister 1/6th Duke of Wellington's Regiment who gave his life for his country near Ypres July 18th, 1915.
Sad thoughts, they linger round our hearts,

While tears they often flow,

And to that sad and silent grave

Our thoughts they often go.
From his loving Wife and Child, 4, King Street, Barnoldswick

Article Date: 19 July 1918
In loving memory of our dear son and brother, Pte. Wm. Lister, killed in action July 18th, 1915, aged 27.
There is a link death cannot sever,

Love and remembrance live for ever.
- From his loving Mother, Father, and Sisters, King Street, Barnoldswick

Died of Wounds
Letters received by Mrs. H. Lovick, 207, Gisburn Road, Barnoldswick, report the death of her eldest son, Bomdr. John Edward Lovick, R.F.A., on March 26th. He was wounded whilst taking despatches to headquarters, and died in the train on the way to the base hospital. The chaplain wrote stating he had been buried at Etaples. Bdr.

KILLED WHILE SLEEPING - Barnoldswick Widow's Double Sacrifice
Mrs. Lovick, 207, Gisburn Road, Barnoldswick, received on Saturday morning the distressing news that her second son, Private Roland Lovick, K.O.Y.L.I., had been killed in France. This is the second bereavement she has suffered within the space of four months, her eldest son (Bdr. J. E. Lovick, R.F.A.) having been killed on March 27th. Pte. R. Lovick, who had been in France just over three months, was killed on the 2nd inst., six days before attaining the age of 19. In a letter of condolence to Mrs. Lovick, Capt. Leach writes:- "He was sleeping in bivouac in our company camp, with two other young soldiers, when a shell burst over them, and they had no knowledge whatever of what happened. This was in the early morning of July 2nd." It is a pathetic coincidence that the elder brother met his death on the same day the younger left England. Pte. R. Lovick was formerly a weaver at Messrs. Nutter's, Bankfield Shed

I saw an article yesterday about another WW1 name being added to the War Memorial at Colne. The four WW1 panels on the Barlick Memorial bear 285 names, this leaves just three spare places without having to add extra areas to the monument. I have a list of 39 names that may or may not qualify for addition to the monument, my next task is to look at them again and remove any non contenders, then I will post the findings under a new topic heading. The 39 names are as follows:-

ABBOT A. ABBOT B. BARRETT P. BELL A. BLEZZARD J. CLAYTON J. CLITHEROE W.

COUSINS G. CROSS G S. CROWTHER J H. DAWSON W. DODGEON B. DOWD W. DUERDEN R

FAY R. FEARN C. FRANKS G P. GOLDING G A. GREEN A. HARGREAVES J. HOLMES W.

IREDALE J.  MAUNDERS R. MILLER G. NICHOLSON J R. PICKLES E. PICKLES M.

PICKOVER W. ROSEN P. SHAW J. SHAW E. TOFT H R. WALKER S. WALSH T. WHIPP H E.

WILSON J. WILSON J E. 

Two removed only 37 to go!.
