Buriton’s WW2 heroes – can you help?

By 6th October 2019World War 2

As part of work to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day in 2020, we are trying to find information about each of the 8 men from the parish who lost their lives:

 Charles ALDRED
 Oscar HILL
 Henry John KERCHER
 William LEDGER
 James NEW
 Percy Henry SMITH

We would like to find out where they had been living, what they had been doing before the war and other information about their family life – as well as details about what they had been doing during the war.

If you have any information – or if you think that you might know any family relatives – please let us know via 01730 231326 or
