More servicemen with connections to The Sombornes

In the course of our research we have found many other servicemen with connections to the Sombornes who were killed in WW1 and others are still being recognised. Among the names established so far are:-.

James Allan, George Kelsey, AD Swayne, William Winter, HA and HC Woodruff.  We would love to have better knowledge of these or any others that may be suggested.

Many thanks to Melissa Lackersteen and Graham Jarvis for further information about William Weston; Val Dawe for more on Percy Leggatt and George Pottle; Jill Baker for information about Henry Baker; David Bevan for some on Fred Davis and others; Reg Reeves for much about Geoffrey Reeves. These servicemen are remembered on either parish war memorials or rolls of honour.

Another WW1 memorial in King’s Somborne

Another WW1 memorial in King’s Somborne ? – the original Village Hall was a wooden hut donated by Herbert Johnson in memory of his wife’s nephew, John Talbot Burgh Leighton who was killed in 1917 whilst flying over France; a wooden plaque to this effect still may be found in the Committee Room of the present Hall.
