We Will Remember Them

On Saturday I had the great privilege of laying a wreath at the War Memorial at the Dulwich Hamlet Football Club on behalf of the staff and readers of the Hamlet Historian magazine and website.

To commemorate the lives of the 22 Dulwich Hamlet players who lost their lives in the First World War, we have produced a little book "When Shall Their Glory Fade?" Our good friend Roger Deason, tells the story of each one of these men that paid the ultimate sacrifice. The book also includes a number of photographic portraits. It is currently available at £3.00, and will be on sale at Champion Hill on matchdays.

Other wreaths were laid on behalf of the club, the owners Hadley Property Group, the Dulwich Hamlet Supporters' Trust and the British Legion.

Many thanks to Mishi Morath for arranging this.

More at the official DHFC website.
