 For Your Tomorrow For Your Tomorrow

Remembering Quorn’s Fallen Soldiers 1914 to 1918
Sue Templeman

As part of Quorn’s WW1 centenary commemorations, Sue Templeman has published this book detailing the lives of the 78 brave young men from Quorn who died.

The book is not a military history; it looks behind the carved names on the war memorial and throws light on the lives, homes, families and communities of these boys and men. It tells their stories and gives them a voice, so that we can appreciate more fully the sacrifice they made, and remember that ‘for our tomorrows’, they really did ‘give their today’. There are over 200 illustrations, and many pictures of the individual soldiers.

Quorn Parish Council has funded for this full coIour magazine quality edition of the book to be distributed to every household in Quorn, free of charge. There are limited number of additional copies for purchase (price £5.00). Please contact the Parish Clerk for Quorn, Christina Gibbs.

In 2015, it is intended that the book will be republished for sale, in a more permanent format, with additional information.
