Presentation copies, containing a special book plate suitably inscribed, were given to every bereaved family as a memorial of their hero, and a token of the County's gratitude. A second edition of Rutland and the Great War was created by the Lord Lieutenant of Rutland’s Committee for First World War Commemoration, as a limited edition of one thousand to mark the centenary of the Great War. It was not the Committee’s intention to make major changes or updates to the original but to produce a high quality publication to mark this special anniversary. This book, therefore, was not a simple reprint of the original, but makes use of the original text, pictures and illustrations, all of which have been adjusted and enhanced where possible, to make as close a facsimile as current technology allows. The text of this book also formed the basis of the RutlandRemembers.org website where users can research those from Rutland who fell in the First World War, find their graves and memorials, and contribute information and images. The intention of all these initiatives is to continue George Phillips’ wish to provide “A lasting tribute to a great and noble part.
