This book is subtitled A Short Account of Duty and Work Accomplished During the War and the first few chapters cover this aspect of the NUT war effort including: Relief funds raised by teachers; action on behalf of Belgian refugee teachers and children; actions taken by the Union on behalf of teachers; scale of pensions for disabled teachers and next of kin; War Savings Campaign; training of disabled servicemen as teachers, exemptions from service, enlistment and demobilization of teachers. Then follows the Roll of Honour in which the names of the dead are arranged alphabetically under Local Associations which are themselves arranged alphabetically, from Aberdare to Yoxton. With each name is given rank, regiment and school where the individual taught, decorations are also shown. This is followed by the list of honours and awards in which recipients are grouped according to decorations, beginning with three VCs (Capt Adlam, 2Lt D.S Bell and 2Lt J Harrison, MC); against each name is shown rank, regiment etc, school and local Association. Finally there is a complete nominal roll of teachers who joined the Forces, over 15,600 names, arranged alphabetically (no rank) and showing the Association to which they belonged. The dead are shown in bold print, and awards are indicated by an asterisk in front of the name. This is another valuable reference work for the genealogist and medallist.
