Village Boys Still would make an ideal gift, but it is a book that is worthy of any bookshelf and will ensure that we never forget these brave young men.

The book is available at £15.00 plus p&p and can be ordered by using the CONTACT US button below.
A superb new book, Village Boys Still, is now available which covers the lives of thirty-one soldiers from the Parish of Tillington who fell in the Great War.

Following the Exhibition in 2014 in All Hallows’ Church, Tillington, Trevor Purnell has conducted further substantial research into the soldiers from the parish who were killed in the Great War. 

He considers that it has been a privilege to use this work to produce a stirring book which includes chapters on all thirty-one soldiers from the parish of Tillington. The book portrays where possible something of their individual personalities and with these insights the young men will no longer be just names, without rank or regiment, inscribed on the brass memorial plaques in our village church.

It is a high quality hard-backed book with an impressive dust cover.  There are over two hundred pages and one hundred black and white images.  In addition there are two sections of beautiful full colour images.  The images of  web quality do not do the book or its images justice, but rest assured you will not be disappointed

Your description of "Village Boys Still" as being a high quality publication is an understatement. It is a super book - many congratulations.

Just a quick line to say how much I appreciated your lovely book. which provides such a poignant memorial to those poor village lads lost in the Great War.

I received the book through the post earlier in December, but didn’t open it then. Instead. I wrapped it up as a Christmas present to myself and opened it yesterday. I was very impressed; the book is beautifully compiled and produced, which is testimony to all your hard work and extensive research over the past couple of years.

The books arrived today and I am very much looking forward to reading them. I think you have done a wonderful job  - congratulations.

Just to say that the book has arrived safely. Very impressive!
Many thanks for keeping me informed and for all your efforts in helping us not to forget.
