Our Lads - heroes of Heigham

This timeline takes you through the major local, regional and international events of WW1.

The children of Wensum Junior School prepared all the content for this timeline during the summer term of 2017. A small group of children worked through the autumn of 2017 to get all the information onto the interactive timeline. Thanks to Miss Lewis, Mr Hubery, Mr Wickens and Mr Storey who worked behind the scenes as 'editors in chief' to check for errors (of which there were very few!). Thanks to all involved - you truly 'worked as historians';xNLx;;xNLx;The background to the timeline is a map of Heigham and locates with a red dot the homes of the men who fell, month by month, through the war. Thanks to the National Library of Scotland who created the map to our specifications, and the Archive Centre in Norwich who provided invaluable help in understanding the layout of the area 100 years ago.
