While focusing primarily on the two World Wars, our 'Wartime Memories' section aims to tell the stories behind all those people from our region who served their country during wartime.

War affects not only those who take up active duty, but also the families and friends they leave behind.  Families are torn apart, loved ones are lost and whatever your views on the cause for our country to go to war there can be no experience more shattering.

The loss of loved ones is a devastating experience for the whole family and yet in the context of war it is considered an acceptable price to pay for the advancement of peace and world stability.

Many thousands of lives have been lost in the never-ending quest for peace and for those people from this region who paid the ultimate sacrifice, 'Wartime Memories' hopes to be able to preserve their memory and recognise the efforts of those men and women who supported the cause closer to home.

War has not been confined to the early part of the 20th century. There are young men and women among us today who have experienced the brutality of war at first hand in the beginning of the 21st century. The efforts of all those who have been asked to serve their country deserve to be recognised, as should the support of their families and friends.

With your assistance we can compile a lasting memorial to all those people who have, in one way or another, contributed to our countries war efforts.
