20 Streets in Portsmouth

The 20 Streets in Portsmouth project remembers 993 men from the Buckland Streets between New Road and St. Mary's Road who served in the First Wrrld War. 136 of these men lost their lives. They are commemorated on two memorials in St. Wilfrid's Church in George Street. The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund supported by Portsea Parish, Fratton Big Local, Portsmouth University History Dept and Portsmouth Archives. More information about the project can be found on its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/20StreetsinPortsmouth/ .
