Blucher at war


During the First World War the Illustrated Chronicle published photographs of soldiers and sailors from Newcastle and the North East of England. These have been made available by Newcastle Libraries.

Note: there were other pits/collieries named Blucher - so some of the servicemen below may not be from the settlement of Blucher.
