Ryburgh War memorials revisited

At the outset of our research into Ryburgh's WW1 casualties, it was very clear that for a

number of reasons the 23 existing names on the memorials were not by any means a

true indication of the number of those for whom Ryburgh was of some significance. The

list below currently numbers  43 men who can lay claim to a rightful place on our

memorials, each with as valid a claim as some of the original 23 and some the more so.

Perhaps we will never discover the true number especially in regard to the category of

the final name on the list. William David Howard  bore the consequences of his war

injuries,suffered in 1918,  being in and out of hospital until his early death in 1923. The

War killed him as surely as those who died in action in the midst of the conflict.
