Synopsis: The 17-volume ‘First World War Roll of Honour’ is a commemorative series of books to remember all the military and civilian casualties of the UK, Commonwealth and former Empire nations who lost their lives during the First World War for the respective time period covered by each volume. Each entry lists, where known and recorded, the name, rank, service number, date of death and unit (or for civilian casualties, name, date of death, cause of death and age). The books are set out by Nation of Service, Military Branch then by Regiment. In some instances only initials are given for first names where full names were not known/recorded in the original sources. Officers were not issued service numbers. The largest single Offensive of the War was well underway by April 1918, with much of the British and French gains from the 1916 Battle of the Somme and the 1917 Third Battle of Ypres having been lost to the German Army within a matter of days. The main Allied transport and supply hub to Amiens was under threat and Paris continued to be devastated by long-range railway guns situated over 75 miles away. April and May saw the Entente finally manage to withhold the 'Spring Offensive' and the reorganization of the British Air Force into a truly modern fighting unit. This fourteenth book in the First World War Roll of Honour series covers the casualties attributable directly to the War (including those killed in action, died of wounds, illness or other means) for all nations of the British Empire and Commonwealth during April to May 1918. It also lists members of the Merchant Navy and the known civilian casualties caused as a direct result of enemy action that are not commemorated by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. In total, 56,685 names are included in this volume of the First World War Roll of Honour.
