Prof. Geoff Williams, Chairman of Crickhowell District Archive, is delighted to tell us that the long awaited book, ‘Young Men, to Arms!’ The First World War in the Crickhowell District has now been published. This splendid book is the result of many months of work by a dedicated group of volunteers and as well as giving us ‘Brief Lives’ of the men who are commemorated on war memorials in the district, gives a most interesting insight into the effect of the Great War at home. Priced at £10, copies may be purchased at the Archive Centre during normal opening hours (10-12.30. Monday-Saturday). Outside these times copies are available from CRiC information desk, open 10-5.00 Monday to Saturday and 10-1.30 on Sunday. There will be a book launch on Friday 27th January at the Bear Hotel at 6.30 pm, to which all are invited.
