Known to the Night

Barrie Barnes Sentinel Press

A model history of a local community's part in the Great War - in this case, not a Pals' battalion, but a factory: that of Reckitts', in 1914 Hull's largest employer and one of the biggest names in the starching and colouring industry. Hull historian Barrie Barnes reconstructs the part played by Reckitts' workforce in the war, from the soldiers who volunteered and fought to the Reckitts' women who set up a V.A.D. hospital in Hull.

In a monumental piece of research, Barnes has researched the individual stories of soldiers and their families (including in many cases photographs), traced the descendants of those who took part, and in appendices lists battle honours, awards and the Reckitts Roll of Honour.
