TitleDuty Roster book for East Mersea Post 1916
AbstractBook found in 2012, behind the studwork of a wall in a house in Firs Chase, West Mersea. The house is next door to The Firs which is thought to have been a casualty station in World War 1. But this is in West Mersea and the book contains duty rosters for the army in East Mersea.
The book is dusty and in poor condition. Some of the contents are almost unreadable, but the main rosters etc are fairly ledgible.
