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.

CRAVEN AND THE WAR
Barnoldswick Soldier's Experience in the Great Battle
In a letter to his parents (Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Suthers) dated March 30th, Machine Gunner Harcourt Suthers writes:- "Just a few lines, hoping they find you well, as this leaves me fine after some hard fighting. I shall never forget it. My company has done splendidly. We held out hours after the infantry had retired. You see I have been spared to keep my word and pay some of the score off for poor Tom Roberts and Sharples. We had three hand-to-hand fights in one day. My revolver was nearly red-hot after one of them. The King came round this morning and thanked us for our work. I guess this is the last throw for Jerry. We are out now for a few days. Don't expect many letters, as we cannot write when these doings are on."

Article Date: 18 October 1918
ROBERTS - In ever loving memory of Pte. Tom Geldard Roberts, N.F., who was killed in action at Passchendaele, Belgium, Oct 16th, 1917.
Could we have raised his dying head,

Or heard his last farewell,

The grief would not have been so hard

For us who loved him well.
He bravely answered duty's call,

His life he gave for one and all;

But the unknown grave is the bitterest blow

None but an aching heart can know.
- From his loving Father, Mother, Brothers and Sisters. 1, Park Avenue, Barnoldswick.
In ever loving memory of Pte. Tom Geldard Roberts, killed in action near Ypres, Belgium, Oct. 16th, 1917, in his 26th year.

He sleeps beside his comrades

In a hallowed grave unknown;

But his name is written in letters of gold

On the hearts he left at home.

His cheerful smile and happy face

Are pleasant to recall,

He had a kindly word for each

And died beloved by all.
- From Uncle Joe, Aunt Fanny, Winnie, Norman and Harold. Willow Bank, Barnoldswick.

He was killed in action on the 30th October, aged 19 years. Pte. Roberts was amongst the number of ardent patriots who succeeded in satisfying the physical standard of the recruiting sergeant nearly three years ago (despite the fact that he was then only 16 years of age), and had actually spent fourteen months in active campaigning in France before the Army regulations was promulgated which enabled his parents to secure his temporary discharge. He was at home only three months, however, before he was due to report again for service on attaining the age of 18 years and 3 months. He returned to France in September. Prior to his first enlistment he worked along with his father at Mr. Jno. Sagar's Quarries, and during the interval at Messrs. Holden's Moss Shed
