Back to the Front 2018

Back to the Front is a community-based Project to research, record and remember the men and women from Abbots Langley, Hunton Bridge, Langleybury and Leavesden who served during the Great War (1914-18). Over one thousand men from the four Hertfordshire villages served, some never to return, all with a story to tell and some as yet not remembered on the village War Memorials. The Project aims to uncover and record these stories and commemorate and remember these individuals a century on from the conflict.
