The Westhoughton Local History group has produced a number of powerpoint presentations about aspects of WW1 and Pam Clarke has written an authoritative book on the subject. These powerpoints and the book deliver a comprehensive record of the contribution that Westhoughton people made to WW1 and the subsequent impact of WW1 on the town.
The following are a series of powerpoint slide shows which can be navigated horizontally to the next slide by simply clicking on a slide shown or using the arrows at the bottom below the slide. The slides can be enlarged by clicking with your mouse on the square with the small arrows at each corner. This is located at the far right of the bottom level of controls. To exit the enlarged powerpoint screen/slideshow, click on the cross of the tab at the top of your screen which shows the name of the slideshow.
