Throughout Worcestershire there are various memorials and rolls of honour dedicated to those men and women who fell in various wars. These memorials and rolls cover many centuries in some cases, most World War One and Two.

During any conflict there are certain acts of bravery or defiance that are noticeable above others. For these acts citations and medals have been awarded.

If anybody has information for those of the Second World War, Boer War, or the like similar to those supplied for the First World War then I would gladly post these as well.

Not all memorials were to people; there are memorials to various types of animal that served and fell in World War I for example, dogs.

Much information about soldiers who fell, were awarded medals and more is to be found in old copies of the London Gazette. Here is a brief resume:

The London Gazette, first published in 1665, is the oldest, continuously published newspaper in the United Kingdom and probably the world. The London Gazette and its sister publications, the Edinburgh and Belfast Gazettes, have a unique position in British publishing. They are official newspapers of the Crown. The London Gazette contains a wide range of office notices including State, Parliamentary and Ecclesiastical notices, Transport and Planning notices as well as Corporate and Personal Insolvency notices to name a few. In addition, a number of Supplements are published covering Honours and Awards, Premium Bonds, Armed Forces Promotions and Re-gradings, Companies' information, etc. and a Quarterly Index.

In the 17th century, it was believed that National efficiency depended on the intelligence received by the Crown and that the reckless publishing of news might endanger it. An embargo on the printing of news other than reports of events abroad, natural disasters, Royal declarations and sensational crime continued until 1640. This had the effect of delaying the development of the press in the UK. Censorship was introduced in 1643, followed by licensing of news publications. The Gazette came about because of two momentous events: the Great Plague and the decision of King Charles II to remove his court - effectively the government of the time - to Oxford. The London Gazette started life as the Oxford Gazette and after a few months changed to its current title.
