Amazing - and sad. There must have been a huge amount of jingoistic peer presure too. An example being all the 'Pals' regiments.

Fantastic that so many of them survived.

Pen y Waun, a coal mining and iron workers' village in the Cynon Valley, South Wales, apparently sent 130 men to France in The Great War. Only the unmarried men came back, the rest joined the French Foreign Legion in 1918, allegedly.
Pen y Waun women are reputed to be extraordinarily assertive.
