WWI soldiers’ names added to memorial

posted in: News | 0

On 7 November 2018, just in time for Remembrance Sunday and the centenary of the Armistice, stonemason Andy Chalk added a new marble stone to the War Memorial on the Village Green. It lists the names of eleven soldiers whose names were missing from the memorial. This Sunday, we will be able to remember these men alongside the 54 others who are commemorated there. You can read more about these eleven men here: http://www.datchetvillagesociety.org.uk/datchet-in-wwi/the-men-missing-from-datchets-wwi-memorial-and-war-roll/
