There are over 40 names on the war memorials in Hintlesham and Chattisham in Suffolk.  They are read out each November at services of remembrance, but who were they and what were their connections to this part of the world?  Explore the site and discover fragments of their lives and details of where they fell.

As the years pass, the historic footprint left by those killed in war is deeper than that of those who survived. None the less, we also remember those who returned home, often bearing the physical and mental scars of war, for their service and sacrifice.
