Heroes of the Battlefield
Published 1916 by "The Walsall Advertiser Co Ltd"

If you were in Walsall in 1916 one of the papers that you may of read on a Saturday would have been the Walsall Pioneer and District News,
its price was one Halfpenny, On the front page was the following announcement,

"Readers should see that they get the Art Supplement given away with this issue"

The "Art Supplement" consisted of a page of head and shoulders view of soldiers who had died or were wounded in the war,
on the top of the page were the words,

" Heroes of the Battlefield"

Under the photo you would get the soldiers rank, his name, if he had been killed or wounded, what regiment he was in, and were he lived.
The "Art Supplement " was made of a slightly different paper than of the new paper, it is slightly thicker.

Please note:
It is not my intention to upset any living relatives of the soldiers that are published here, the main aim is to be of a benefit to any genealogist in their research,
I would like to thank Pickard for his help in getting an idea on to the Internet, so all that I can say is please read, and view the photos, with my blessings...
