Overstrand in the Great War
The parish of Overstrand in north Norfolk is just one of the hundreds across the country which has taken the opportunity to look back and remember the young - and sometimes not so young - of the village who went off to war just over 100 years ago. With the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and Overstrand Parish Council, the full colour and 208 pages of this title have been brought together by author Tim Bennett, a former Head Teacher of the Belfry school in the village. From the remarkable sermon preached by Overstrand resident and Eton Head Teacher Rev Dr Edward Lyttleton, wrestling with the morality of going to war, through to the changed lives of those who returned from the war, it is an intriguing and moving read.
