To commemorate the centenary of the Battle of Mametz Wood, Rosemary Nicholson researched the men whose names are recorded as having served at Mametz within the Cardiff City Corporation Roll of Honour held at Glamorgan Archives.
The roll of honour records the name, address, age, rank and regiment of these soldiers, providing a starting point for the research which appears in her booklet. Some of the names have revealed an interesting hidden history of information, whereas other names did not reveal very much at all.
This is the first of two documents researching Mametz Wood produced by Rosemary.
