Other Cambridgeshire Men - Roll of Honour

While trying to record the names of the many men and women who are recorded on the memorials of Cambridgeshire I thought it would be a nice idea to record information about those who have not yet been documented here or do not appear on these memorials but fell during war time. If you have a relation who is not recorded on any of the current memorial pages then they can be listed here as long as they come from Cambridgeshire.

These men and women can be from any war going back in time it could be a modern conflict such as the Falklands War, Korean War going back in time to World War 1 or 2, the Boer War or even the Battle of Waterloo or the like.
