Howicks First World War Stories


Howick’s First World War Stories

Avril and Arthur Meakin

Paperback  45 pages, with illustrations


Howick, a peaceful village on the Northumberland coast was not spared the upheaval which rocked the world in 1914, indeed it had a direct link to the man who coined the phrase that came to be the summation of that conflict, Sir Edward Grey : ” The lights are going out all over Europe”.

The authors capture in this charming little book how the lives of everyone, from the highest to the lowest had their lives changed forever by this global conflict.
