On the 9th August 1915 the village of New Whittington lost three of its young men in one tragic day.
The men all served with the 9th Battalion Sherwood Foresters.
Between the three men they left two widows and four children were left fatherless. Mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters were all left bereft. The community would be realising the stark consequences of this war on that little village in Derbyshire called New Whittington.
The stories of the men can be read by clicking on each mans name -
