Walcote at War

This Parish has two war memorials, one at St. Leonard’s Church, Misterton and the other at Walcote Memorial Hall. They each bear the names of sixteen men who served in this country’s forces and lost their lives. As part of our commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1 we wanted to find out who these men were. Below you will find brief details of our findings so far. We’d love to hear from you if you have anything else you can add.

World War 1

World War II

This is a work in progress. 2020 will see the 75th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe on 8th May and the end of the war in the Far East on 15 August. We hope to add to this page over the intervening months.
