A tribute to those who served in the Great War of 1914–1918
Forty NPL employees were sent to war in late 1914 and many others joined them over the course of the war. Those who left were told that their posts would remain open for them on their return as serving King and Country would count as a service to NPL. Some did manage to return to their posts, but many were not so fortunate.
We have a brief summary of the NPL staff who sacrificed their lives during the First World War in a poster and a booklet ‘To The Glorious Memory’ with more stories of NPL’s First World War Heroes. Many thanks to Dean Sumner for collating this historic information.
