This website has been created by Alan Berry. The information contained in the Collingham and District War Archive is displayed in good faith, and is collated from a number of different sources, including the records of private individuals and from the findings of original research conducted by me, and a number of other volunteers. We have found no definitive list of the men from Collingham, Linton and Micklethwaite who served in World Wars One or Two, of their services or of their medal entitlements. Although I have tried to be as accurate as possible and have checked original sources, it is possible that errors have been made. If so I apologise and will endeavour to correct them as soon as we are informed.
While this site is intended for private educational purposes only, we accept no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage that may arise from use of the information herein. Readers are advised to check for themselves the accuracy of any information.
For reasons of legibility and readability, copies of newspaper articles or war diary entries are not posted on this website. Instead, the newspaper articles have been directly transcribed and are presented in newspaper font and formatted to look similar to a newspaper 'cutting'. Similarly most of the war diaries quoted are originally hand written and are often hard to read. These have been transcribed and are presented to appear as typewritten carbon copies. The text has not been altered when making these presentational changes.

The use of quotes from third party sources does not mean we endorse the opinions and information therein nor that we claim they are accurate; we cannot accept any responsibility for errors, or omissions.
