A biography of Special Forces Commander Peter Wand-Tetley OBE MC by Michael Scott
This book is the companion volume to Names in Stone 1939 - 45. It tells the stories of more than 250 men from Bradford-on-Avon and surrounding villages that fell in the first World War.
Here, compellingly told, are the stories of more than 70 men, and one woman, from Bradford-on-Avon, Holt, Monkton Farleigh, South Wraxall, Westwood, Wingfield and Winsley, who gave their lives in the Second World War.
During the course of the Great War Wiltshire became home to troops from Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well as Britain. With soldiers forming a third of the population the effect on the businesses, farms and indeed the morals of the county was dramatic. Wiltshire and the Great War describes pre-war training, outlines the pioneering of military aviation in the county and describes the role of railways in moving tens of thousands of troops. Also described are advances in military technology, the camp-building scandals that led to an inquiry by a Royal Commission, press censorship and the blighting of the Stonehenge landscape. Wiltshire and the Great War provides a wealth of detail for those interested in local, military and social history.
