Gainsborough WWI Roll of Honour. We have a copy of the Roll of Honour which was compiled in the early 1980s by Mr R. H. Johnson. This has been expanded to include servicemen who are remembered on war memorials and who were listed in the Gainsborough News as ‘wounded’ and who subsequently died. The Roll of Honour is in PDF format.
