Soldiers who wrote in the Halloughton Hall Hospital Ledger

 The following schedule shows in alphabetic order a list of the soldiers who made an entry in the ledger. Some wrote detailed accounts, others poems and greetings. Some even drew pictures. There are a number of instances of soldiers writing more than one entry else the duplication of names.

These soldiers came from all part of the British Isles and also Australia and New Zealand.

It is intended to add each entry to this website together with any information discovered as to who the soldiers were and what happened to them after they left Halloughton Hall. The list below may have some inaccuracies because of difficulties sometimes in deciphering signatures and writing.

However what is noticeable is the quality of the handwriting, spelling and grammar of these men who would have left school at age 14.
