TADCASTER AND DISTRICT WW2 MEMORIALS
Welcome to Tadcaster and District WW2 Memorials, the following pages are to compliment the WW1 site, and to give details of those men who gave their lives from Tadcaster and its surrounding towns and villages in the Second Great War. Ironically even though the Second World War was fought 22 years after the First World War it is easier to gather details of men who lost their lives between 1914-1919, as a result any information regarding men relevant to the WW2 section would be appreciated and acknowledged.
