IN THIS the centenary year of the start of the First World War, it’s great to see so much interest in the stories behind our heroes who risked their lives for the freedom we enjoy today.

Some of them are easier to find than others simply because of the amount of time that has passed and the limited records for many of the men.

Historian Elizabeth Wade is hoping her recent stroke of luck will go some way in uncovering the mystery of Frank White whose name appears on a North Oxford war memorial.

After finding a dead man’s penny with his name on it, she’s one step closer to solving the mystery of the 47th man on the memorial.

Let’s hope his story can soon be told so future generations can know what he did for his country.
