Nottingham at War: 1914-1919 & Lenton: A Suburb's Sacrifice
In the 1990s the Society established a project to learn more about the Lenton men and women who died as a result of the First World War.
It has now culminated in a new publication entitled Nottingham at War: 1914-1919 & Lenton: A Suburb's Sacrifice, published by Lenton Times in association with Leen Editions.
