As the war went into its second year there was growing pressure on men to volunteer to serve, or if not eligible to fight, then to work in munitions production.
This left more and more vacancies to be filled by women and children and calls for them to be paid at a fair rate.
Meanwhile there was a constant flow of stories from the Front of men dead and wounded, of hardship and heroism.
The links below will take you week-by-week through some of the stories that appeared in the Shipley Times & Express exactly 100 years before. The headlines given only contain a few of the leading stories.
There are usually three pages, two of which will generally cover events and life in the Shipley district with the other one telling some of the stories of the men at the front.
