Another 37 names are to be added to the War Memorial in South Street, Bourne, to remember those servicemen who lost their lives during the Great War of 1914-18.

It is not known exactly how many from Bourne went to war but based on the population of the time, it is estimated that it was about 250.

When the War Memorial was erected 60 years ago, an appeal produced the names of 97 men whodied in action but it is now known that 37 names were missed and so the total from Bourne who made the supreme sacrifice was 134 and the additional names are now being added in time for Remembrance Day in November when the nation honours her war dead. The plaques will be dedicated on Remembrance Sunday on November 8.
