This War Record, first published in 1920, gives the military service details of the 252 Cambridge University Press employees who joined the armed forces during the First World War. The records are of variable length, with the most comprehensive giving the employee's full name, the regiments in which he served, the areas where he was based, positions held, promotions received and injuries sustained. Out of the 41 employees who lost their lives, photographic portraits of 40 are included. From advertisement department worker Vincent Cummings, killed by a sniper in 1917 while carrying an injured comrade to safety, to Charles Woods, a member of the Press Secretary's department who survived the Somme, Arras, Ypres, Cambrai and Mons, the records pay a moving tribute to the men who risked their lives to serve their country during the First World War.
