"Your Country Needs YOU!" - so said Lord Kitchener in his famous posters urging men to join during the early period of the Great War when it was known that thousands of extra troops would be needed to augment the regular Army and Territorials.

Hundreds of recruiting stations were set up in towns and cities the length and breadth of the country and Raunds was no exception. Here we list men known to have signed on the dotted line in Raunds. Most were from the town but not all.

Our first entries were those men who did not survive the conflict, but more names have been added as they are discovered, and the search continues.
