(Eric Galvin)  This book is based on detailed research into the lives and experiences of the nineteen men, from twelve families, listed on the roll of honour in the Catholic Church of SS Joseph and Teresa in Wells.

Starting from the formation of the Catholic community, biographies of each of the men are provided, including a nationally known barrister, a renowned Indian doctor, a jobbing gardener, and two men who were occasionally in trouble with the law.

This is followed by a look at the ‘Home Front’ in Wells, and aspects of the end of hostilities and the survival of remembrance ceremonies through to the current day.
