New data recently added to the site.

As part of the works of researching the Huntingdonshire Cyclist Battalion I have accumulated  a lot of data on other soldiers from villages in Huntingdonshire.  In order to make this information available this data is gradually being added to the site to help other researchers.

The villages with these soldier details are being added to this site - the villages transcribed are marked in blue at the following link.

If you have any other data on these soldiers, and would like it published, please contact me huntscycles@btinternet.com
