The Lost Cryptians

Old Cryptians killed during the Great War and Second World War by Simon Birch, Sarah Birch and Ray Pocock.

No less than 58 Old Cryptians in the 1914-18 and 80 in the 1939-45 conflicts, made the supreme sacrifice for King and Country. This 300 page book seeks to record their all too brief lives and what they achieved. It is a poignant story but one that deserves our respect and admiration, and a recognition that their sacrifice was not in vain.

A kindle edition is available from Amazon.
