Easington Lane 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. Below are some of the photographs of men from Easington Lane.

The Clock Tower War Memorial in Easington Lane lists the names of 155 local men who served in the armed forces during the First World War and 29 from the Second World War.[1]
