A facsimile copy of a book containing a record of Bury St Edmunds’ World War One dead is being made available free to any school or social or history group who want one.

In February we told how Bury secondhand and antiquarian bookseller John Crawford had found the original typed book among a collection of unwanted volumes he was given and decided to get a limited print run facsimile made to make it more widely available.

The first run contained a minor printing error so John had a second run printed for sale and is now giving away the remaining 30 first run editions.

He said: “I’ll be happy to give them to any organisation that wants them, especially schools, local history groups, British Legion branches.”

The book is a typed roll of the military dead with their units, plus a hand-written list of Zeppelin raid victims.

Call John Crawford on 01284 704453.
