This Friday, 11 November, is of course Remembrance Day. On that day our David Wilson Library will bring out from its Special Collections a very special volume indeed.

The 'Roll of Honour of the Men of Leicester and Leicestershire in the Great War, 1914-1919' records all those men from the city and county who lost their lives in the First World War.

The Roll of Honour will be available to view in the Special Collections Reading Room between 9.00am and 5.00pm on Friday. You do not have to be a student or staff member to come and see the book. Please ask at the information desk for access.
