This month's frontispiece is thanks to Barrie Bertram's cancelled summer holiday and his interest in the WW1 involvement of, for some, a summer holiday location.  Read more (starting Page 3) about the photo and about: a Preston freeman with possibly a unique epitaph; the South Lancashire Colonel who prepared the most important tactical manual for the BEF in WW1; the first Kentish tale about getting men their entitlement of rum; the Armistice prize winners in 2013 and more.
