In 1992 the authors decided that attempts should be made to commemorate the 1600 or so souls from Cheltenham and the local area who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Great War.   For the title of their book they selected a phrase from the Memorial Scroll, sent in the 1920s to the bereaved families – the phrase was “….. leaving all that was dear“.
