Wartime Quorn

This section contains extracts and accounts relating to Quorn in both world wars. It includes many photographs of Quorn service men and women, information about the American 82nd Airborne Division who were based in Quorn in WW2, transcriptions of names from the war memorial (including when and where they died) ,and many other pieces of interesting information relating to life in Quorn during wartime.

There are also references to the Boer and Crimea wars. As with so many other towns and villages, Quorn had its quota of war heroes and tales of courage, valour and self-sacrifice which should not be forgotten.
