The Men on Buckland Brewer’s War Memorial

What a great meeting last night. Thank you to all those members and guests who attended. Dave’s 27 years of research into Buckland servicemen of both world wars is a true labour of love. I am sure we will be learning more about these men during the next year. Dave also had lists of Buckland Men awarded the Silver War Badge, which was given to those who had been invalided out of the services. This class of records can be searched on Ancestry

Then there was all the excited conversation afterwards – no one was in a hurry to go home. I was very interested to see two electoral rolls – for 1951 and 1967 – these somehow found their way under my photocopier and then back on to the display table. If you think these are recent then just do the maths!
