Writtle: Local Heroes
John Trusler’s book ‘Local Heroes. The Villagers of Writtle Who Gave Their Lives in The Great War’ (2008) charts the First World War and, with pictures, commemorates those who died. He lists and remembers not only those who are commemorated on the War Memorial but also those who had a connection with the parish. This 252 page A4 book is a major study of the life and times.
