NATIONAL ROLL OF THE GREAT WAR Section III – London: (West, Central & North London)


A pen picture of the war service of well over 100,000 men and women.
One of the most sought-after sets of reference books of the First World War is the National Roll of the Great War. The National Publishing Company attempted, shortly after hostilities ceased, to compile a brief biography of as many participants in the War as possible. The vast majority of entries refer to combatants who survived the Great War and the National Roll is often the only source of information available. Fourteen volumes were completed on a regional basis; the Naval & Military Press has compiled a fifteenth volume which contains an alphabetic index to the fourteen published volumes. Original volumes are scarce and command high prices.
