Teesdale's First World War Legacy

In 1915, Owen Scott, the curator of The Bowes Museum, sent out a letter to the 44 townships of Teesdale suggesting a Roll of Honour be created to record all those individuals who served in the First World War – ‘whether in the Navy, the Army, or as Nurses – and of whatever rank.’ For unknown reasons, the Roll of Honour was not completed, although nearly 500 names are listed in the returns held in the Museum’s archive.
