Darsham in World War I

Like most other villages in the UK the people of Darsham paid a high price in men fighting in the war.

However being close to the east coast, the civillian population also experienced the horrors of war with constant fear of bombardment from the sea and the dropping of bombs from frequent Zeppelin Airship and Gotha Aircraft raids.

Civilians were also subject to numerous personal and travel restictions as the area was under martial law.
