Centenary of World War One : Beccles Men in the Great War

4 August 2014 marks the 100th year since Great Britain declared war on Germany. The 1914-1918 campaign would become known as The Great War. This blog post honours those Beccles men who served and died "for King and Country".

The first Beccles man to fall was Pte. Frederick William Seago on August 26, 1914; the last before the signing of the Armistice was Sgnr. Harold Herbert Hadingham, who died of wounds on November 10, 1918. My great grand-uncle William Burgione Waters is also among the names listed below.

"Some twenty of our heroes lie buried in Beccles, and their names are specially marked with an asterisk (*). Yearly their graves will be decorated, and their memories thus kept green. And to those who fell on the many far-off battle-fields, parents and friends and townsmen alike may feel confident that kindly and grateful hands will long tend those few feet of foreign soil that will now be for ever England. Heroes all, we owe them a debt we can never repay; for they died that we might live; and though sad hearts in Beccles to-day mourn their loss, they feel it was a sacrifice well worth the making."

Those last words, written in 1920, don't particularly sit well with me. Well worth the making? I'm not convinced of that; for those loved ones and family who lost their sons, their brothers, their uncles, their cousins, their friends, their lovers, it would certainly not have been worth it. For the good of our country as a whole, dying so we might live? I am forever grateful to each and every one of these boys, and they are commemorated in this special blog post.
