The Society was a trade union body which ceased to exist in 1974 when its remaining members at that time were absorbed into the much larger National Union of Hosiery and Knitwear Workers.
It is believed that the original postcard size Roll of Honour was given to each man/family named and the companies mentioned – famous Leicester textile names in their day – were possibly given a large card version which they could frame. Being somewhat fragile these have not survived.
The Society’s records are held at the National Archives and our record of the Roll of Honour will be offered to them if it is not included in the papers they hold.
