Note
As can be seen from the above list, several additional Neath RFC members who were lost have been identified in researching a short pamphlet “Neath RFC During the First World War” which will be available shortly.

However, if anybody is aware of any other Neath players who gave their lives in the conflicts and whose memories the Club should honour annually, please contact me via the Club.
