More than 14,000 members of the University of Cambridge took part in the First World War, but the University kept no official records of their services. Founded on the arduous work of J. Austin Fabb, printer of The Cambridge Review, the ‘War List of the University of Cambridge’ was laboriously compiled from various separate college records. It was the seventh and last edition, produced in April 1917, while the Battle of Arras was at its height.
Forces War Records has exclusively exclusively made this invaluable record of service available as a fully searchable database. Searchable information includes the roll of Cambridge graduates who served and fell during the war, and (where known) gives details and dates of period of service, rank and regiment, casualties and place or battle in which they occurred. Service qualification, honours, awards and year of graduation are also detailed.
