During the Second World War there were a number of RAF. stations within a few miles of Newark, from many of which operated squadrons of the Polish Air Force. A special plot was set aside in Newark Cemetery for RAF. burials and this is now the war graves plot, where all but ten of the 90 Commonwealth and all of the 397 Polish burials were made. The cemetery also contains 49 scattered burials of the First World.

The Polish War Memorial is just inside Newark boundaries, an important enough to merit this website. Following the fall of Poland to German and Soviet forces in 1939, many Poles left their homeland to continue the fight from other countries. By the summer of 1940 Britain was facing the axis powers alone, but with the help of men from other European countries. Not the least of these were the Poles. Among the RAF squadrons at Northolt, there were a number of Polish squadrons based there in 1940-1943. During the Battle of Britain in the late summer of 1940, the 303rd (Warsaw) squadron saw service at Northolt, flying Hurricane fighter aircraft. They were replaced in October by the 302nd (Poznan) squadron after the Battle of Britain had been won. Others serving from the aerodrome were the 304th, 306th, 308th, 305th, 315th and 317th squadron. Some of them returned to the airfield for another tour of duty here. Thirty Polish airmen, a fifth of their number, were killed in the Battle of Britain, and of these, five had been flying from Northolt.After the war was over, the Polish armed forces in Britain were disbanded. A group of Polish air force officers decided to form the Polish Air Force Association. One of their first decisions was to erect a memorial for their former comrades. A committee under Air Vice Marshal Izycki started a public appeal for funds (most of which were contributed by British people), and the work soon began.The memorial was unveiled on 2 November 1948 by Lord Tedder, RAF Marshal and chief of the air staff. It is made from Portland stone, with bronze lettering and is topped by a bronze Polish air force eagle. The craftsman was Miecystam Lubelski, who had been recently liberated from a labour camp. The names of 1,243 Poles who died in the war were inscribed on the memorial.Viscount Portal of Hungerford made a speech before the unveiling. He said that it was a sad blow that many Polish veterans were unable to return home, as their country had been occupied by the Soviet Union. He added that it would be to the mutual advantage of Britons and Poles that the latter were to make their home in Britain.In 1991, the first post-war democratically elected Polish president, Lech Walesa, laid a wreath at the memorial. By this time it had been realised that further work was needed. Repair work was necessary, as were extensions in order to accommodate a further 659 names that had not been included hitherto. An appeal was made in 1994 and the memorial was rededicated in 1996 in the presence of the Duke of Gloucester, British and Polish military and civil dignitaries.The memorial remains as a monument to the men of the fighter and bomber squadrons and as an expression of Anglo-Polish friendship.

Polski War Memorial jest tylko wewnątrz granic Newark, na tyle ważne, aby zasłużyć na tej stronie. Po upadku Polski do wojsk niemieckich i radzieckich w 1939 roku, wielu Polaków opuściło ojczyznę, aby kontynuować walkę z innych krajów. W lecie 1940 roku Wielka Brytania była skierowana uprawnienia osi sam, ale z pomocą ludzi z innych krajów europejskich. Nie najmniejszym z nich byli Polacy. Wśród eskadry RAF w Northolt, było wiele polskich dywizjonów tam z siedzibą w 1940-1943.During Battle of Britain w późnym latem 1940 roku, 303-gie (Warszawa) dywizjon zobaczył usługi w Northolt, latające Hurricane myśliwców. Ich miejsce w październiku przez 302-gi (Poznań) eskadry po bitwie o Anglię została wygrana. Inne serwujące z lotniska były 304, 306 i 308-gie, 305-ci, 315 i 317 dywizjonu. Część z nich wróciła na lotnisko na kolejny placówkę tutaj. Trzydzieści Polscy lotnicy, piąta ich liczby, zginęło w bitwie o Anglię, a wśród nich pięć leciał z Northolt.After wojna na polskie siły zbrojne w Wielkiej Brytanii zostały rozwiązane.Grupa polskich oficerów sił powietrznych postanowił utworzyć Polski Związek Sił Powietrznych. Jednym z ich pierwszych decyzji było wznieść pomnik dla swoich byłych towarzyszy.Komitet w ramach Air Vice Marshal Izycki rozpoczął apel publicznego dla funduszy (w większości zostały wniesione przez Brytyjczyków), a prace szybko began.The Pomnik został odsłonięty 02 listopada 1948 przez Pana Marszałka RAF, Tedder i szefa personelu lotniczego , Jest wykonana z kamienia portlandzkiego, z brązu napisami i jest zwieńczona brązu polskiego lotnictwa orła.Rzemieślnik był Miecystam Lubelski, który został niedawno uwolniony z obozu pracy. Nazwiska 1243 Polaków, którzy zginęli w czasie wojny zostały wpisane na memorial.Viscount Portal Hungerford wygłosił przemówienie przed premierą. Powiedział, że to smutne, że wielu polskich cios weterani byli w stanie wrócić do domu, ponieważ ich kraj został zajęty przez ZSRR. Dodał, że byłoby to z obopólną korzyścią dla Brytyjczyków i Polaków, że te ostatnie były, aby ich domu w Britain.In 1991, pierwszy powojenny demokratycznie wybrany prezydent Polski, Lech Wałęsa, złożył wieniec pod pomnikiem. W tym czasie został on sobie sprawę, że niezbędne są dalsze prace. Prace naprawcze były konieczne, ponieważ były rozszerzenia w celu dostosowania się do kolejnych 659 nazw, które nie zostały włączone do tej pory.Apel powstał w 1994 roku i pomnik został rededicated w 1996 roku w obecności księcia Gloucester, brytyjskich i polskich wojskowych i cywilnych pomnik dignitaries.The pozostaje jako pomnik ludzi z eskadr myśliwców i bombowców, a jako wyraz angielsko-polska przyjaźń.

Memorial Service to the Polish aircrew will take place at Newark Cemetery NG241SQ

The Prime Minister at the time Winston Churchill speaking about the Battle of Britain in 1940 said, “Never was so much owed by so many to so few.” By the beginning of 1941 there was a fully fledged Polish Air Force operating alongside the RAF. With 14 Squadrons it was larger than any other of the Air Force from en-occupied Europe that had joined the Allies. Over 17,000 men and women passed through the ranks of the Polish Air Force while it was stationed in the UK. They shot down 745 enemy aircraft, with a further 175 unconfirmed. They dropped thousands of bombs and laid hundreds of mines, flying 102,486 sorties notching up a total of 290,895 operation flying hours. They achieved this at a cost of 1,973 killed and 1,388 wounded. They received 342 British gallantry awards. A Question of Honour is the gripping, little-known story of the refugee Polish pilots who joined the RAF and played an essential role in saving Britain from the enemy, only to be betrayed by the Allies after the war. Second World War, the story of millions of young men and women who gave everything for freedom and in the final victory were let down.

Six Polish crew of Wellington HX384 were killed on 11th August 1942 Buried in Newark Cemetery.

20150709_163257Two tribute events to be held at 2:30pm – 14:30pm on Wednesday 12th August 2015 at two location at the same time – one by aviation historian group, of Marloes Dale Pembrokeshire West Wales and a 2nd one at Newark Cemetery by Alan Brooke Newark RAFA Club with support from Friends Of Newark Cemetery.

The Crashed after takeoff into the sea

 The crew of six Polish nationals perished in the crash. The wreckage was found on 21st September 1991 by divers from the Llantrisant Sub Aqua Club.

A propeller from a World War 2 bomber which crashed 73 years ago is to go on display at The Heritage Centre, Dale, Pembrokeshire, where it will be unveiled as the final part of Ceremony which will commence with a Memorial Service dedicated to the six Polish aircrew who lost their lives in the crash.

The propeller is currently being refurbished at Valero Oil Refinery, Pembroke, and will be a poignant memorial to the Polish aircrew Sgt. Drozdziok (wirless operator); Sgt. Wojtowicz (airgunner); Sgt. Modrzewski (airgunner); Sgt. Omieljaszko (pilot); P/O Maslanka (navigator); F/O Siuzdak (pilot) who were killed in August 1942 when their Wellington Mk.1c aircraft serial number HX384 of 304 (Polish) Squadron R.A.F. crashed into the sea during a night take-off from R.A.F. Dale, Pembrokeshire. The aircrew lie buried at Newark Cemetery, Nottinghamshire. No. 304 (Polish) Squadron was a Polish manned unit within the Royal Air Force’s Coastal Command.

It was in 1991 that divers of the Llantrisant Diving Club, Glamorganshire, found the aircraft wreck and salvaged the two propellers one of which was later transported, together with a machine gun recovered at the same time, to Poland and is prominently displayed at the Polish War Museum in Warsaw. The other propeller, now destined for Dale, was for several years part of a small museum in Abergavenny. Recently recovered from a garden the Abergavenny propeller has been gifted by Mr. Steve Jones to the Heritage Centre where it will go on permanent display accompanied by a brief history of 304 Squadron; a description of the Wellington bomber; details of the crash and photographs of the crew who perished when the aircraft crashed.

The Memorial Service to the six aircrew will take place at Marloes Church followed by the acceptance of the propeller at the Heritage Centre, Dale, which will take place on 12th August 2015. We would like to acknowledge the Coastlands Local History Group in West Wales, who are organising this Service with support from Malcolm Cullen.

Newark Cemetery A laying of poppy crosses on the graves of the six airmen will be preformed by members of Newark RAFA Club with support from the Polish Community and Friends of Newark Cemetery during a short service of remembrance to coincide with the service at Marloes Church, West Wales.

The following message from History Group in Wales will be read out by Vice Chairman of the Newark RAFA branch Allen Brooke. “We, at Coastlands Local History Group, are immensely touched that so many of you are joining us to commemorate the crew of Wellington Bomber HX384. We feel it is very fitting that at both the Memorial in St Peters Church, Marloes, to all the Polish Aircrew who gave their tomorrows, and at the grave of individual Airmen in Newark, The Act of Remembrance will be enacted at the same time. It is very reassuring to know so many people still feel the need to make the effort to attend such a ceremony. If any of you are ever in Dale we would be delighted to welcome you to The Old Stables Heritage Centre, where the propeller from HX384 will be in pride of place”.

304 Squadron The Polish 304 Squadron was created on 22nd August 1940 and was declared ready for operations with Vickers Wellington medium bombers on 25th April 1941. On 7th May 1942 it was transferred to RAF Coastal Command along with the Wellingtons.

After Poland fell to the enemy, thousands of Polish pilots, soldiers, and sailors escaped to England. Devoted to liberating their homeland, some would form the RAF’s 303  squadron, known as the Kosciuszko squadron, after the elite unit in which many had flown back home. There thrilling exploits and fearless flying made them celebrities in Britain, where they were “adopted” by socialites and seduced by countless women, even as they yearned for news from home. During the Battle of Britain, they downed more German aircraft than any other squadron, but in a stunning twist at the war’s end, the allies rewarded their valor by abandoning Poland to Joseph Stalin. This moving, fascinating book uncovers a crucial forgotten chapter in world war 11–and Polish–history. To the Polish volunteers who were to fly and fight so brilliantly and tenaciously throughout the Battle of Britain, the United Kingdom was justifiably known as ‘last hope island’. GIL_UK LONDON_ENTERR SIKORSKI_22 Many Polish airmen lost their lives, over 400 are buried  during and 2nd world war. Many Polish servicemen choose to be buried or  cremated in Newark Cemetery after the war. Polish achieved honours for bravery with war medals awarded for their courageousness. This book is a tremendous account of their contribution in those hectic days before the RAF began to take the offensive across the channel. Summer of 1940 and the Battle of Britain — the darkest days during ww11. Great Britain stood alone, fighting for its life against the powerful German war machine. The celebrated squadron of Polish fighter pilots whose superb skill in the air helped save us during our most desperate need for help. They not only played a crucial role in the Battle of Britian in 1940, but they also contributed significantly to the allied war effort.100_1058

Newark remembers together with RAF and Polish veterans will remember the Warsaw Uprising Air Bridge Memorial tribute. To be held each year on the last Sunday in Sept at 2pm {27th Sept 2015} at Newark Cemetery

The tragic fate of Warsaw during WWII is known to all, but surprisingly few are familiar with the heroic resistance put up by Poles during the 1944 Uprising. The plan was to reclaim Warsaw from the Germans and greet arriving Soviet forces as equals in an already independent city.

The Polish government-in-exile, headquartered in London, informed the Allies of the plans and were promised support. On 1 August at 5pm the Uprising began. Three days later Allied airdrops began, flown by British, Polish and South African pilots.

The Warsaw Rising Museum, arguably the city’s finest museum, was opened in 2004 to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the doomed Warsaw Uprising of 1944. The Uprising is tragic and largely unknown chapter of World War II, in which a brave Polish resistance of freedom fighters met annihilation and retribution from the enemy, in front of a backdrop of underhand maneuverings – principally by Stalin. Hushed up by the Soviets after the War and largely ignored by the West, the subject of the Uprising has only started to receive the attention it demands in recent years. It is a fascinating and disturbing story, partly because of the gall and guile of the Polish Home Army, which, despite being small and woefully ill-equipped, resisted the Germans for 63 days; and partly because of the complicated issues surrounding the event. The Uprising’s ultimate futility, the severe consequences of its failure, the inaction of the Russians, and what many Poles still perceive as the betrayal of Poland by its Western Allies.

The Warsaw Uprising Museum attempts to accurately recreate the atmosphere and events of the struggle of 1944, and to give a picture of the realities of life under the enemy which precipitated the fight for freedom. The Uprising has been criticised in the past as a pointless gesture that brought needless death and destruction upon the city; however the Museum shows the importance of this ‘gesture’, which serves as an example of the strength of the Polish spirit – the same spirit that eventually helped overthrow Communism and secure Poland’s status as a free country. The Museum seeks to give this bold resistance, and in particular its patriotic protagonists, a prominent place in the national consciousness – something which was denied to them for 45 years after the War.

At the time it was common to omit from war memorials the names of those who took their own lives or who were shot for cowardice, many of whom would now be diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. Sapper Pride ferried wounded soldiers from the frontline in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, with the Water Transport Corps when he was aged 40. The barges operated under constant shell-fire. His omission from the Memorial to the Fallen was discovered by Mr Pete Stevens, who works for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. http://newarkadvertiser.co.uk/articles/news/Sapper-William-Prides-name-added-to-Newark-w Taken by Laurencegoff There are now 457 names on war memorial to the fallen from the first world war that died from 1914 -1920.  One  extra name was added that of Sapper “William”           W.

Sapper William Pride

The name of a first world war soldier from Newark, has finally been added to a war memorial after two years of campaigning.

Sapper William Pride’s name was engraved onto the Memorial to the Fallen in Newark Cemetery yesterday, which by coincidence was the the 96th anniversary his death.

Sapper Pride, who served with the Royal Engineers, committed suicide in 1918 at a military camp in Kent while the balance of his mind was disturbed by his experiences of combat.

He had served with the Water Transport Corps ferrying wounded soldiers from the frontline in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, while under constant shell-fire.

His name was omitted from the town’s roll of honour after the war because of the stigma attached to suicide at the time.

It was sadly a familiar story replicated up and down the country as soldiers, seamen and airmen who took their own lives or were shot for cowardice were refused inclusion on war memorials.

Many would have had what we now understand to be post-traumatic stress disorder.

The wrong was finally righted yesterday when the name of Sapper William Pride was engraved on one of the memorial’s granite monuments. Sapper William Pride’s great granddaughter, Cherilyn, talks about his name being added to the war memorial

Sapper Pride had already been recognised as a casualty of war by the Commonwealth War Grave Commission and honoured with one of its headstones on his grave which is in Newark Cemetery.

Pete Stevens of Balderton, who works for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, discovered the omission and launched a campaign backed by the Advertiser and Sapper Pride’s descendants.

After strong lobbying, Newark Town Council, who own the cemetery, agreed in July to change the criteria for inclusion on the war memorial which meant Sapper Pride’s name could finally be added.

The work was carried out on Thursday. It was done by Mark Gill, the workshop manager at E. Gill and Sons of Newark and letter cutter Roger Smeeton.

A stencil was placed on the memorial and the name was then sandblasted near the bottom of the final column of first world war names.

Mr Gill said: “It was a shame it was not put on originally but I am pleased that the criteria has changed so it could be added.” Sapper Pride’s great grandaughter Cherilyn Pride of Southend Avenue, Newark, visited the cemetery just after the work had been completed. She said it was wonderful to see his name finally on the memorial.

“Pete Stevens really got the ball rolling and the Advertiser has been a great help,” she said.

“I always hoped that his name would be added and I am very pleased that it has been. I feel it is important that people see the names of the brave men who sacrificed so much.”

Mr Stevens said it had taken a long time to sort the matter out.

“In the end we have done what we set out to achieve,” he said.

“It is right and fitting that Sapper Pride’s name is on the memorial.”

Sapper William Pride’s name set to be added to war memorial in Newark by end of September Newark

Mon Aug 18, 2014

The name of a first world war soldier whose experiences drove him to commit suicide should be added to the Memorial to the Fallen in Newark Cemetery by the end of next month.

Sapper William Pride is buried in a Commonwealth War Graves plot in the cemetery but his name has never been put on its memorial.

He committed suicide in 1918 at a military camp in Kent. At the time it was common to omit the names of those who took their own lives.

His family including grandson Mr Stephen Pride of Bancroft Road, Newark, have been seeking to get his name on the memorial for two years.

Newark Town Council finally agreed in July to change the criteria for inclusion on the memorial.

The chairman of environment and leisure Mr Dennis Jones told a full meeting of the council last week that it had taken a while to get things changed but said that they would finally be able to properly record the name of William Pride.

The town clerk, Mr Alan Mellor, said that he hoped the work would be done next month.

Sapper William Pride’s family brought together by campaign to get his name included on war memorial Newark 

Thu Aug 07, 2014

A family who say they have been reunited over a campaign to get a soldier’s name on a war memorial placed poppies on his Newark Cemetery grave as part of the 100th anniversary of the first world war.

Sapper William Pride’s family, including members from Doncaster and Nottingham, paid tribute to the soldier, who committed suicide in 1918 after suffering from what is now known as post-traumatic stress disorder.

The family took part in a ceremony organised by the Friends of Newark Cemetery, when poppy crosses and British flags were placed by the graves of more than 50 soldiers who died in the war.

Sapper Pride’s name is not on the Memorial to the Fallen, but Mr Alan Mellor, the clerk at Newark Town Council, last month told the Advertiser he hoped it would be added before Armistice Day (November 11).

Mr Peter Kay, of Nottingham, a grandson of Sapper Pride, said: “The story about William Pride has brought our family together.

“I wasn’t in much contact with this side of the family until I got a call from Stephen (Pride) telling me about the campaign to get his name on the war memorial.

“It’s wonderful to think his name could be on there soon.”

Mr Stephen Pride said: “It’s nice to think that the family have been reunited over his grave.”

Sapper Pride ferried wounded soldiers from the front line in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, with the Water Transport Corps when he was 40. The barges operated under constant shell-fire.

At the ceremony, the Rev Judith Pollard read war-poem In Flanders Field before a minute’s silence was observed.

Mrs Pat Alexander, president of the Friends of Newark Cemetery, said: “We wanted to remind ourselves and thank all those people who gave their lives so that we could live in peace and grow up in freedom. We owe them a debt that we can never repay.”

First World War soldier’s name won’t be on memorial in time for 100th anniversary commemorations

Fri Jul 25, 2014

The grandson of a First World War soldier whose experiences drove him to suicide says his name should have been added to a memorial in time for commemorations marking the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the conflict.

The omission of Sapper William Pride’s name from the Memorial to the Fallen in Newark Cemetery was first raised with the town council nearly two years ago.

It was only last week that the council agreed the criteria that must be met for names to be added.

William Pride’s grandson, Stephen Pride, of Bancroft Road, Newark, said: “The fact that his name won’t be on the memorial in time for the commemorations is a frustration. He should have been added by the time the world comes to remember them.

William Pride’s grandson, Stephen Pride, of Bancroft Road, Newark, said: “The fact that his name won’t be on the memorial in time for the commemorations is a frustration. He should have been added by the time the world comes to remember them.

“This has been going on for nearly two years. It should have happened by now.

“They’ve dragged their feet and there’s a family here who just wanted what was right.

“To have him there though, in the final analysis, is what we wanted. He will be there for all eternity with his comrades and the injustice will be at an end. William will never be forgotten again.

“These lads went out there and stood and fell for their flag. The greatest sadness is that 100 years on it is still going on in the world and we haven’t learned from it.”

The Advertiser first highlighted the case two years ago and Mr Pride said: “Without the help of the Advertiser this wouldn’t have happened.”

Since finding Sapper Pride’s grave, the Prides have researched his life and have found an extended family.

They will all gather at his grave on August 3 and place a palm cross there.

Sapper Pride is acknowledged as a first world war casualty with a Commonwealth War Graves Commission headstone in Newark Cemetery.

His great-grand-daughter, Miss Cherilyn Pride, has discovered his name is on a war memorial at Christ Church, Newark.

She said: “It would have been nice to have this resolved before the start of the first world war commemorations.

“We should be in an era where we’re proud of the men and women who fought for our country.”

Sapper Pride, of the Royal Engineers, committed suicide in 1918 at a military camp in Kent.

His Army record and the coroner’s report show he took his own life “whilst of unsound mind.”

At the time it was common to omit from war memorials the names of those who took their own lives or who were shot for cowardice, many of whom would now be diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Sapper Pride ferried wounded soldiers from the frontline in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, with the Water Transport Corps when he was aged 40. The barges operated under constant shell-fire.

His omission from the Memorial to the Fallen was discovered by Mr Pete Stevens, who works for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

“This has dragged on for nearly two years,” he said. “It’s beyond a joke.

“I’m very disappointed with how long it’s taken to agree criteria for names to appear on the memorial

“Sapper Pride suffered terribly from what he had seen.”

The town clerk, Mr Alan Mellor, said it was too late to get Sapper Pride’s name on the memorial in time for next month’s first world war commemorations, but he hoped it would be done by Armistice Day, on November 11.

Mr Mellor told the Advertiser: “It has taken some research to gather the background information. We had to go back and search through a number of records and documents to get a clearer idea of what we needed.

“Getting together with the Royal British Legion also took a little while.

“I have not had any discussion with Mr Pride’s relatives about getting a resolution by a particular date. We have had correspondence with them but I haven’t corresponded with them recently.

“We will get in touch with the family to discuss where we’re at.

http://newarkadvertiser.co.uk/articles/news/Under-fire-over-memorial-name

“There is now a process in place and we will consider Mr Pride and any other requests that are made.

“We didn’t have a policy on this, but now we do and we have a process. I don’t agree that the council has acted in a manner that is not reasonable.”

Families of first world war servicemen buried in Newark Cemetery, of whom there are believed to be 49, have been invited to put a poppy cross on their graves at noon on August 3.

Criteria agreed by Newark Town Council for including names on the war memorial

1) The purpose of the Memorial to the Fallen is to commemorate the names of those people who would be considered as being a casualty of war. This position is supported by the existing names on the memorial that are grouped together according to the war/conflict they served in.

2) The memorial is solely for those people who served in the Armed Services.

3) They lost their lives:

– Being killed in action.

– As a result of their injuries suffered while in action.

– While serving in the Armed Services abroad during a period of conflict.

4) A residency qualification; that they lived or had lived in Newark. Newark is defined as the electoral boundary of the town council at the time the person died.

5) Future requests that do not fall within these criteria will be considered by the council in conjunction with the Royal British Legion.

Family’s finds support case for memorial name Newark

A photograph has been found of a soldier missing from Newark’s Memorial To The Fallen, along with his first world war medals.

The Advertiser’s coverage of a campaign to include the name of Sapper William Pride on the memorial has put his Newark descendants in touch with family they hadn’t spoke to in decades, and in some instances did not even know existed.

That has led to the discovery of his picture and his medals.

William Pride committed suicide following frontline service.

His Army record and the coroner’s report show he took his own life “whilst of unsound mind,” which, it is now said, would be recognised as post traumatic stress disorder.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission class William as a casualty of war.

His widow, Priscilla, was issued with the dead man’s penny with his name on. These were distributed to those whose lives were lost as a result of the first world war.

William’s grandson, Mr Stephen Pride, and his daughter Cherilyn, William’s great-granddaughter, came across his story while researching their family tree.

Mr Pete Stevens, who works for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, had also discovered William’s story and called for his name to be added to the memorial inside Newark Cemetery.

He has been supported by Stephen and Cherilyn.

The Advertiser’s stories were seen by cousins and distant cousins they had never met.

Among them was Mr Peter Kay, formerly of Wright Street, Newark, a cousin Stephen hadn’t seen in 31 years, who got in touch to say he had found a photograph of William taken before he was called up.

He also had a photograph of William’s wife, the mother of his five children, the penny and his 1914-18 campaign medal.

Stephen, 60, of Bancroft Road, Newark, said: “Seeing his campaign medal and particularly the dead man’s penny received by Priscilla makes the plot thicken as to why he cannot be on the war memorial.

“The penny says he died for freedom and honour and that seems to me to be an acceptance his death was as a direct result of the war.”

Cherilyn, 40, of Southend Avenue, Newark, said: “Being in the paper has brought cousins and distant cousins together, some of whom we didn’t know existed.

“It was very emotional to see a photo of William and what amazed me was the likeness between him and dad.

“We should honour and respect these heroes from all eras and generations.”

William served with the Royal Engineers in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, operating hospital barges ferrying wounded soldiers away from the front under constant shell-fire.

He committed suicide at a camp in Kent on September 11, 1918.

It is believed the stigma that would have been attached to William’s suicide was why his name wasn’t included on the 1921 town Roll of Honour.

William’s name was not on the list agreed by Newark Town Council and the Royal British Legion in 2007 when plans for the Memorial To The Fallen were being considered.

The town council and the Royal British Legion are to meet to discuss William’s case.

Under fire over memorial name Thu Nov 28, 2013

A council’s failure to take action over a name missing from a war memorial has prompted accusations that it is reinforcing prejudices surrounding mental health. 

There have been calls for the name of Sapper William Pride to be added to the Memorial to the Fallen in Newark Cemetery.

He committed suicide at an Army camp in Kent in September, 1918. A coroner ruled the balance of his mind was disturbed following active service.

The omission of his name from the Newark memorial was raised with the town council a year ago by the Advertiser and military historian Pete Stevens, who works for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

Mr Stevens, of Balderton, said: “I keep asking the questions but I get no answers.

“It just gets pushed to one side and swept under the carpet.

“Through its inactivity, the council is reinforcing outdated prejudices surrounding mental health.

“These men with shell-shock and what we now to be Post Traumatic Stress Disorder were often wrongly labelled cowards through prejudice we now recognise as hideous.

“I have had all the excuses ­— he didn’t fall in battle, for instance ­— but I have proved there are others on the memorial who didn’t fall in battle either.”

Sapper William Pride had served with the Royal Engineers in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, operating hospital barges ferrying wounded soldiers away from the front under constant shell-fire.

It is believed the stigma that would have been attached to his suicide was why his name wasn’t included on Newark’s 1921 Roll of Honour that was used as the basis for the Memorial to the Fallen.

Mr Stevens said: “He died while the balance of his mind was disturbed through service.

“He has been recognised by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission as a casualty of war and has one of our headstones.”

His widow was issued with a dead man’s penny with his name on. They were given to those whose lives were lost as a result of the first world war, further evidence, says Mr Stevens, that his name should be on the memorial.

William Pride’s great-granddaughter, Cherilyn Pride, said: “People in Newark ask me what the town council is doing about putting William’s name on the memorial.

“It needs to be resolved in honour of him and all of the others who are yet to be acknowledged elsewhere.

“It has to be a priority. His family want to see it happen.”

The clerk to Newark Town Council, Mr Alan Mellor, said: “We realise this is still an issue.

“We have not made any progress in dealing with it.

“However, I would like to in the near future and would look to clarify the situation well before the centenary of the outbreak of the first world war.”

SAPPER WILLIAM PRIDE,

 Sapper William Pride ferried wounded soldiers from the frontline in Mesopotamia under constant shell-fire

Opportunity knocks for decision-makers Letters Thu Dec 06, 2012

Sapper William Pride’s omission from Newark’s Memorial To The Fallen is not unique (WWI Soldier Should Be On Memorial, Advertiser, November 22).

Most communities are now discovering the identities of individual sailors, soldiers and airmen who were forgotten.

Mr Meakin of the Newark branch of the Royal British Legion says: “Mr Pride doesn’t fit the criteria to go on the memorial so will not be added,” but it is not explained who set that criteria, or, more importantly, who has the power and authority to vary it.

As a first step we must investigate the decisions made in 1921.

Were the Roll of Honour committee members even aware of Mr Pride? Was his omission ever intentional?

Was Mr Pride’s name considered in 2007 when plans for the new memorial were drawn up?

We should not be hide-bound by decisions taken in 1921 or 2007.

In 2014 we will be commemorating the sacrifices made by all the men and women of Newark in the Great War.

Not all made the ultimate sacrifice but William Pride did. His death was to a large extent attributable to his wartime service.

As a recently retired soldier and a first world war historian I would be proud to see William’s name on the memorial.

I would be ashamed to even try to defend the indefensible.

We now have the opportunity to do the right thing. Let’s hope we have the courage to take it.

— DUDLEY GILES, Friary Road, Newark.

 Royal Air Force Station Balderton or more simply RAF Balderton is a former Royal Air Force station located 2.0 miles (3.2 km) south of Newark-on-Trent, between the now extinct Great Northern Railway (GNR) Bottesford-Newark line and the A1 road in Nottinghamshire, England.

Opened in 1942, it was used by both the Royal Air Force and United States Army Air Forces. During the war it was used primarily as a troop carrier transport airfield and after for munitions storage

before it was closed in 1957. Today the remains of the airfield are located on private property being used as agricultural fields.

When was RAF Balderton built? 1941

RAF Balderton, taken 18 April 1944 oriented eastward (top). As part of the buildup to D-Day, the 439th Troop Carrier Group has large numbers of C-47s and CG-4 Horsa Gliders parked on the grass interior of airfield as well as on the dispersal loops along the perimeter track.

During the Second World War there were a number of R.A.F. stations within a few miles of Newark, from many of which operated squadrons of the Polish Air Force.

A special plot was set aside in Newark Cemetery for R.A.F. burials and this is now the war graves plot, where all but ten of the 90 Commonwealth and all of the 397 Polish burials were made. The cemetery also contains 49 scattered burials of the First World War.

A memorial cross to the Polish airmen buried here was erected in the plot and was unveiled in 1941 by President Raczkiewicz, ex-President of the Polish Republic and head of the war time Polish Government in London, supported by General Sikorski, Commander-in-Chief of the Polish Forces and war time Polish Prime Minister. When both men subsequently died, General Sikorski in 1943 and President Raczkiewicz in 1947, they were buried at the foot of the Polish Memorial. General Sikorski’s remains were returned to Poland in 1993, but there is still a memorial to him at Newark.

No. 408 Squadron’s history dates back to June 24, 1941, when RAF Bomber Command’s directive called for the formation of 408 Squadron as part of No. 5 Group RAF. It was to be the second Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) bomber squadron formed overseas. Goose Squadron, as it was to become known, was initially based at Lindholm in Yorkshire, England, and equipped with Handley Page Hampdens. During the war, the Goose Squadron converted aircraft several times. No. 408 would change from Hampden aircraft to the Halifax, and then to the Lancaster in August 1943

During World War II, Balderton Airfield, opened in 1941, became home to RAF bombers and Sir Frank Whittle, inventor of the jet engine, lived and worked on his engine designs at Balderton Hall

For more on the former Balderton airfield see RAF Balderton 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAF_Balderton

A large private house on the southern outskirts of the village built 1840 for Thomas Spragging Godfrey. Godfrey became sheriff of Nottinghamshire in 1853 (Times 9 February 1853, page 3) and died at Balderton Hall on 7 September 1877. The hall was advertised for sale in the Times in November 1880: house, stables, cottages for gardener and groom, and 135 acres (0.55 km2), the remaining 425 acres (1.72 km2) to be sold separately.

It was bought in 1930 by Nottinghamshire county council for conversion to a mental hospital but work on this stopped during World War II. The hospital was opened for patients in 1957 and closed in 1993. There is now housing on the former hospital site and nearby is the Fernwood business park.

Canadian Red Ensign Flag during the 2nd world war, 17 (RCAF) Royal Canadian Air Force

were killed and are buried in Newark-On-Trent Cemetery

This was the official flag of Canada from 1921 until 1957. Since 1868, Canada has used this design with slightly different alterations to the Canadian shield. The Canadian badge in the fly of the flag has gone through several revisions since then. This was used by Canadian troops in the trenches of World War I. It was also the Canadian flag that was carried to the beaches at Normandy, France by Canadian troops during the D-Day invasion of occuppied France. The entities represented in the shield are the arms of the countries where the vast majority of Canadian people hail from: England, Scotland, Ireland and France. The three green maple leaves in the bottom of the shield represent Canada itself. In 1957, the three Maple leaves were changed from green to red and that design was used until the establishment of the maple leaf flag we know today in 1965.

Many British Commonwealth helped thanks to  Royal Australian Air Force (4 killed), British, Royal Canadian Air Force (17 killed), Royal New Zealand Air Force (3 killed) and Polish Air Force some (400 killed) They are Buried in Newark-On-Trent Cemetery 2nd World War at Newark Cemetery Nottinghamshire. Let us all Remember the many Airmen that were flying Spitfires with the Royal Air Force during the Battle to save Europe 1939-1945.  Paying a fitting Tribute to our brave fighters for their contribution. 17,000 Polish pilots and ground crew members had formed 14 squadron in RAF and 2,000 were killed of which over 400  from 1940 – 1947 are buried in Newark Cemetery.

Cadet Keith Rollason CouzinWood, they believed that it would be an air experience flight of a life time.

On this date 29th July 1942, to help mark the 70th anniversary

Sadly two young cadets died in an accident when the plane crash, Keith Rollason Couzin-Wood  age 16 and Geoffrey Hughes of Chesterfield.  They were both on their  first flight, when RAF Hampden bomber from 408 Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force, when it stalled and crashed soon after take off from RAF Balderton.

War plane crash boy remembered 70 years on.  A Newark town councillor laid a palm cross of remembrance on the grave of an air cadet killed 70 years ago in a second world war plane crash.

Keith Couzin-Wood, 16, is buried in the war graves section of Newark Cemetery.He was a passenger in an RAF Hampden bomber that crashed just after take-off from RAF Balderton on July 29, 1942.The plane, from 408 Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force, stalled and crashed about two miles south-east of the airfield. The crew, which also included another cadet, Geoffrey Hughes, of Chesterfield, and two flying officers, were all killed.

Keith, a member of the Southend-on-Sea squadron of the Air Training Corps, was from Leigh-on-Sea and the youngest of four children. His father’s family were from Southwell and Normanton. It was his first flight. There is no record of the crash in the Advertiser’s archives because information was often heavily censored during the war. Many cadets were sent to work on RAF stations across the country during the war. They were used to carry messages, move equipment, load ammunition and do office work. Town councillor Mr Laurence Goff said he felt compelled to mark the 70th anniversary of Keith’s death as there was no official commemoration. He also laid flowers at the grave on the anniversary.

Memorial  

There are over 300 memorials the special centrepiece in my heart and mind is the memorial the “Shot at Dawn” over three hundred men who were shot as cowards, but many we would now recognise as suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.

 

The memorial was modelled and portrays a likeness of a young British soldier 

of the 1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliess

Private Herbert Burden age 17 

 he was blindfolded

 and tied to a stake ready to be shot by a firing squad

He like many who lied about his age to enlist in the armed

 forces and was later shot for desertion. It is surrounded by a

 semicircle of stakes on which are listed the names of every

 soldier executed in this fashion. These include:

 

 Conceived as a place of national remembrance not only for the fallen, but also for those who have served the nation.

During World War One, around 306 British and Commonwealth soldiers were shot for desertion or cowardice, most of them were sentenced after a short trial at which no real opportunity for defence was allowed, this would have been sad for many families. At last it is recognised that several of them were under age when they volunteered and that many of them suffering from shell shock or post traumatic stress disorder,
Andy Decomyn’s statue shot at dawn is modelled on Private Herbert Francis Burden, of the 1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers, who was shot at dawn at Ypres on 21st July 1915,aged 17.

The names of Herbert Francis Burden and those others who suffered the fate of being shot at dawn are listed on the stakes arranged in the form of a greek theatre around the statue, symbolising the tragedy that these events signify, many of the posts say Age unknown and this is because many young men lied about their age in order to enlist, some of them had no representation at court-martial because most of the officers had been killed when they went over the top, first (the average life expectancy of an officer on the front line was 10 weeks) We know of these 306 soldiers, sadly to this day we do not know the total figure because between 80pc and 90pc of those sentenced to die had their sentences commuted and were probably sent to jail or hard labour.

Each year many visitors ask about the location of the Shot at Dawn Memorial in the Arboretum, it seems appropriate that it should be on the eastern edge where dawn strikes, the six trees facing the posts represent the firing squad, all aiming for the medal around the statue’s neck and none of them knowing who had the fatal bullet, it must have been very traumatic for them too, having to shoot one of their own. The Campaign For a Pardon
After the 75 year Secrecy Act was lifted, Members of the Shot at Dawn Organisation started Campaigning for a Pardon.

The campaign commenced in 1992 and was led by Janet Booth who sought a pardon for her grandfather, Private Harry Farr, janet’s grandmother had lived with the shame and stigma of her husband being shot for cowardice in 1916. She believed he was wrongly convicted and actually suffering from shellshock. Harry Farr’s family took the Ministry of Defence to the high court and won, in 2006 a posthumous pardon was granted for Private Harry Farr and the other men that were Shot at Dawn.

The Shot at Dawn Memorial is a British Monument at the National Memorial Arboretum near Alrewas, in StaffordshireUK. It memorialises the 306 British and Commonwealth soldiers executed after courts-martial for cowardice or desertion during World War I.

The mass pardon of 306 British Empire soldiers executed for certain offences during the Great War was enacted in section 359 of the Armed Forces Act 2006, which came into effect on royal assent on 8th November 2006.

Britain finally honours Polish war effort with first official Arboretum Memorial

A section of the Polish Memorial, it commemorates the memory of the Polish men and women who gave their lives in the Second World War.  National Memorial Arboretum, 2011.Seventy years after start of second wold war, memorial and book commemorates 500,000 Poles who fought under UK command. They showed extraordinary bravery, many giving their lives as the ultimate sacrifice for our Freedom. The Arboretum, near Lichfield, Staffordshire, contained some 130 war memorials.

All 306 soldiers of the First World War who were shot at dawn for cowardice or desertion have be granted posthumous pardons 90 years later

Shot at Dawn

During the First World War some 306 British and Commonwealth soldiers were shot for desertion or cowardice; the real cause for their offences was often a psychological reaction to the stresses of war which today would be diagnosed as post-traumatic stress syndrome or combat stress reactionShot at Dawn is modelled on Private Herbert Burden, of the 1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers, who was shot at Ypres in 1915 aged 17.

The phrase ‘When you go home tell them of us’ is from the epitaph carved on the memorial of the 2nd British Division in the Kohima cemetery for the Allied war dead. The full inscription on the epitaph reads, (When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say, For Their Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today). The verse is said to have been inspired by the epitaph written by Simonides to honour the Greek who fell at the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC and is attributed to

John Maxwell Edmond

Don’t tell me that you understand, don’t tell me that you know, Don’t tell me that I will survive, how I will surely grow

Don’t tell me this is just a test, that I am truly blessed, That I am chosen for this task, apart from all the rest. Don’t come at me with answers that can only come from me, Don’t tell me how my grief will pass, that I will soon be free. Don’t stand in pious judgment of the bonds I must untie, Don’t tell me how to suffer, don’t tell me how to cry. My life is filled with selfishness, my pain is all I see,But I need you, I need your love, unconditionally. Accept me in my ups and downs, I need someone to share, Just hold my hand and let me cry, and say,”My friend, I really do care.”

 “At the going down of the Sun and in the morning, we shall remember them.”

Honours the fallen, recognises service, sacrifice and pride in our country. It is a spiritually uplifting place and is emerging as a world-renowned centre for remembrance. There are nearly 300 memorials for the armed forces, civilian organisations and voluntary bodies who have played a part in serving their country around the world. I have enjoyed and happy to sharing my photos with you, it was a wonderful day. I also took the time to see the many Memorial lovely walks around the trails exploring the outdoors.

RAIL INDUSTRY MEMORIAL

On the top of the plinth is a black granite replica Class 8 Freight Locomotive.
The rear panel has an etching montage showing life on the railways through the ages.

 

QUAKER SERVICE MEMORIAL

Dedicated: 20 April 2013

Commemorates: Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) wartime service.  

The Quaker Service Memorial Trust commissioned the memorial to honour the vital humanitarian role undertaken by members of the Friends Ambulance Unit (FAU), an independent body enabling conscientious objectors to undertake wartime civilian service, and the Friends Relief Service (FRS), the official relief body of the Religious Society of Friends, which worked at home and in mainland Europe to help civilians in distress.

Designed by Staffordshire sculptor and Quaker, Rosemary Barnett, it features six texts carved onto four stone benches. The seats are arranged in an open circle – as are many Quaker meetings for worship – symbolic of unity and equality.

GCHQ

Dedicated: 13 July 2012

Commemorates: GCHQ

The memorial is a sphere of rose coloured granite; and the plaque to anonymous code breakers at the National Memorial Arboretum, Staffordshire reads: “To commemorate all British and Allied personnel whose work with Signals Intelligence and Communications Security has supported HMG in war and peace since 1914”. The sphere was sculpted by the artist Nick Johnson.

The memorial features two pieces of code; a line of Morse code G C C S representing the “Government Code and Cypher School” the forerunner of GCHQ, and a line of binary code representing the numbers 7 3 8 17, the position of the letters G C H Q in the alphabet.BASRA MEMORIAL WALL

Dedicated: 11 March 2010

Commemorates: The 178 UK Service personnel and one MOD civilian who lost their lives on combat operations in Iraq. It also lists members of Coalition Forces who were killed while under UK command during six years of conflict.

The original memorial was built in Basra in 2006 and stood outside the front of the Headquarters of the Multi-National Division (South East). Following the end of operations, the Basra Memorial Wall was brought back to the UK and rebuilt. The original wall was built, dismantled, and reconstructed at the Arboretum by British soldiers from 37th Armoured Engineer Squadron in a personal gesture to commemorate their fallen comrades.

The brass plaques on this memorial are the originals placed on the wall when it was in situ in Basra, Iraq.

 

ROYAL AIR FORCE ASSOCIATION REMEMBRANCE GARDEN

Dedicated: 28 September 2009

Commemorates: All those who have served in the RAF and Commonwealth air.

Inspiration for the garden comes from the RAF Association’s dedication, the last line of which is “we will remember them”. The central feature is the RAF Association emblem – a magnificent stainless steel eagle sitting on top of a globe. The eagle is made up of over 1,000 hand-forged feathers and is surrounded by a segmented RAF roundel, which is separated into four quarters to depict the RAF Association at the heart of RAF welfare. The RAF Association provides friendship, help and support for any members of the RAF past and present, and their families. It is the largest single-service membership organisation in the UK, with around 74,000 members and almost 500 branches.

 

POLISH ARMED FORCES WAR MEMORIAL

Dedicated: 19 September 2009

Commemorates: The Polish men and women who gave their lives in World War II. Designed as a tribute to the fallen and also as an educational aid for visitors not familiar with the history of the allied Polish Forces

ARMED FORCES MEMORIAL

Dedicated: 12 October 2007

Commemorates:  The men and women of our Armed and Merchant Services who have lost their lives in conflict, as a result of terrorist action or on training exercises since the end of WW2. Unlike the World War memorials in towns and villages across the Nation, there is nowhere else that records over 16,000 names of those who have been killed on duty in recent times.

Dedicated in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen on 12 October 2007, the Armed Forces Memorial is a nationally significant focus for Remembrance, providing recognition and thanks for those who have given their lives in the service of the country.

The Memorial is a stunning piece of architecture designed by Liam O’Connor, inspired by the ancient landscapes of prehistoric Britain and the classical forms of ancient Rome.

 

THE FAR EAST PRISONERS OF WAR MEMORIAL BUILDING

Dedicated: 15 August 2005

Commemorates: The 55,000 Far East Prisoners of War from World War II. It not
only remembers those who died, but also encompasses the whole story of events during this unprecedented chapter in British history. The memorial roll contains the name and rank of all British Servicemen taken prisoner during the South East Asia conflict and embraces the story of their treatment and the thousands who died as well. The building houses an exhibition which reveals clearly the life and experiences of these prisoners, aided by archive video footage and interviews. It was opened on the 60th Anniversary of VJ Day, the end of World War II in the Pacific.

Close by is the original lychgate from the cemetery at Changi Jail in Singapore, built by prisoners as a memorial to their comrades who died.

THE MERCHANT NAVY CONVOY

Dedicated: 1 October 2003

Commemorates: Over 46,000 British merchant seafarers and fishermen lost in conflict during the 20th Century, including two World Wars, Falklands, Kuwait, Vietnam, Iran, Iraq and others.

31,908 seafarers perished in World War II, proportionately more than any of the Armed Services. 2,535 trees represent the British vessels lost at that time.

 

 

SHOT AT DAWN MEMORIAL

Unveiled: 21 June 2001

Commemorates: 306 British and Commonwealth soldiers who were shot for desertion or cowardice during World War I. Most were sentenced after a short trial at which no real opportunity for defence was allowed. Today it’s recognised that many of them were underage and suffering from shell-shock. Andy Decomyn’s statue is modelled on Private Herbert Burden, of the 1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers, who was shot at Ypres in 1915 aged 17. In 2006 a posthumous pardon was granted.

STILLBIRTH AND NEONATAL DEATH CHARITY MEMORIAL

Dedicated: June 2001

SANDS was founded in 1978 by a small group of bereaved parents devastated by the death of their babies and by a complete lack of acknowledgement and understanding of the significance and impact of their loss. It aims to support anyone affected by the death of a baby; to work with health professionals to improve the quality of care and services provided to bereaved parents and families and to promote changes that could help to reduce the loss of babies’ lives.

THE CHILDREN’S WOODLAND

Dedicated: 2001

Commemorates: Sponsored by the Midlands Co-operative Society Limited and planted with 2,640 native British trees, the Children’s Woodland was designed to combine arboriculture and wildlife education with Remembrance.

Individual trees have been sponsored by families and schools and dedicated to babies and children who have passed away. In the nearby shelter are large child-sized wooden figures of the characters from ‘The Wind in the Willows’ by Kenneth Grahame. They were carved by the Essex Woodcarvers under the supervision of Peter Benson of the British Woodcarvers Association.

The children’s activity area and picnic area was funded by Staffordshire Aggregates Levy Grant Scheme (SALGS). It is a purpose-built wooden environment for children aged between 7-13 years.

MILLENNIUM CHAPEL OF PEACE AND FORGIVENESS

Dedicated: 2 November 2000

The Chapel represents a desire for, and is dedicated to, peace and forgiveness. It is also a celebration of the beginning of the third Millennium. It is the only place within the UK where the Act of Remembrance is observed every day of the year. Visitors to the Chapel and surrounding areas are invited to stop and observe the Silence at 11am to remember those who have lost their lives in conflict.

The Chapel’s wood construction is supported on twelve trunks of Douglas fir, each one representing one of the twelve apostles on whose witness the early church was built. Douglas fir was selected to pay tribute to David Douglas, the great plantsman, the 200th anniversary of whose birth coincided with the beginning of work on the Chapel. Each pillar has a carving by Jim Heath of one of the apostles.

National Memorial Arboretum

More than 50,000 trees, form a living tribute to Britain’s fallen heroes at the National Memorial Arboretum.

The brainchild of Commander David Childs, a retired naval officer, the site was opened in 2001 using donations and Lottery funding. It encompasses 300 separate memorials paying tribute to the Armed Forces, the emergency services and voluntary organisations.

1. The centrepiece of the memorial arboretum is the Portland stone Armed Forces Memorial which honours the UK’s 16,000 servicemen and women who have lost their lives since the end of the Second World War.

3. The Polar Bear memorial is dedicated to the 49th (West Riding) Infantry Division, which fought the Germans in Norway in 1940 and was then stationed in Iceland.

4. The marquees, which stage more than 200 events a year, are to be replaced by a pavilion.

5. The Millennium Chapel of Peace and Forgiveness, the only place in the UK where  the Act of Remembrance is observed every day.

9. The Y Group Memorial remembers women from the Auxiliary Territorial Service, the Women’s Royal Air Force and the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force.

10. Among the latest additions to the site is the 165ft-long RAF Remembrance Garden, which honours those who   have served in the RAF and Commonwealth air forces. The garden layout is based on the RAF roundel.

I have been walking around Newark cemetery since  2004. In 2005 we set up a group Friends Of Newark Cemetery, I have been Chairman since 2010. I had an opportunity to have a blog for the last four years and I have had 37,260 visit across the UK, and the World. Many kind words which I really enjoy and appreciate from people that have contacted me. It has intrigues me, something that makes me want to look into who is buried and history going back to 1856, which has been fascinating.

It Will Never Be The Same If You Become A Volunteer at Newark Cemetery. Perhaps the biggest difference that you will make is in you. Volunteering is a life-changing experience. It will provide you with a new outlook and lease on life. You will understand better than most people how you fit into the family history of who is buried in Newark Cemetery since 1856. Make no mistake about it, this is an experience that you won’t want to miss.

On This Weekend In Football: Willie Hall Scores England’s Fastest Ever Hat-Trick

by Stuart Moriarty-Patten

16th November 1938

Willie Hall takes under four minutes to score England’s fastest ever international hat-trick

George William Hall was known to everyone as Willie and was born in 1912 in Newark, Nottinghamshire.  He had played as a schoolboy international for England and had begun his professional career with Notts County, then in the Third Division (South) in 1930.  After 35 games and 8 goals in just over two years with the club, in which they won promotion to the Second Division, he had done enough to bring himself to the attention of bigger clubs.  He was signed by Tottenham Hotspur, who were pushing for promotion from the Second Division, in December 1932 for a fee of £2600 plus another £500 if he won an England cap.  Signed as a replacement for George Greenfield who had broken a leg, the 20 year-old Hall was immediately picked for the first team, making his debut ironically away to Notts County.  Spurs lost that game 3-0 but would finish runners-up at the end of the season to win promotion.

Spurs returned to the top flight in style and were lying second when Hall was selected to make his debut for England in a 4-1 win against France at White Hart Lane in 6 December 1933.  Although he played well enough he wasn’t selected again until 1937, although he did appear for an FA XI against an Anglo-Scot XI in 1935 to celebrate the silver jubilee of King George V.   Hindering his call up for further caps was an injury received in 1934 at Maine Road when, after a heavy tackle, he required surgery on his knee.  This left him sidelined for a number of months, and when he returned to the first team towards the end of the 1934/35 season Spurs had struggled and were bottom of the table and were to be relegated back to the second tier.   Out of the top division the selectors overlooked him, but his form was such that even though he was still playing in the Second Division he was called up to win his second cap in a 5-1 win over Northern Ireland in Belfast on 23 October 1937.  He scored one of the goals in this game and was picked for the next international against Wales on 17 November in which he scored the second goal in a 2-1 victory at Middlesbrough’s Ayresome Park.

On 6 November 1938 he was selected for his seventh England cap for the game in which he was going to write his name in the record books by scoring five times in a magical thirty-minute period either side of the half-time break.  Tommy Lawton had opened the scoring in the eighth minute but it was nearly half an hour before the team scored again and Willie Hall started on his rampage.  The first of his goals came in the 36th minute followed by two more in the 38th and 40th minutes which gave Hall the record of the fastest international hat-trick by an England player, a feat timed officially at 3 minutes 30 seconds and yet to be bettered.  It took him 10 minutes of the second half for him to get his fourth, quickly followed by the fifth another 10 minutes later.  Stanley Matthews rounded off the afternoon with England’s seventh in the 75th minute.

Willie Hall was a skilful dribbler of the ball but not renowned as a goalscorer and the five he scored for England was more than half the total he got for Spurs all that season, but he had not only scored the fastest hat-trick for England that day but also equalled Steve Bloomer’s 1896 record for the most goals in an international game by an English player.   It was a game that was to leave Hall immensely proud and Stanley Matthews, who himself had a rewarding afternoon having been credited with assists for all of Willie Hall’s goals, later wrote in his autobiography The Way It Was, “Willie was full of emotion back in the dressing room and cried unashamedly as each of his team-mates in turn congratulated him on his outstanding performance and his England goalscoring match record.”

Hall was to win a total of 10 caps, scoring a highly creditable nine goals and was a regular selection up until the intervention of the Second World War in 1939, with his final game being against Yugoslavia on 18 May 1939.  During the war he was rejected by the army on health grounds caused by injuries suffered from playing football, and he served in the London Police reserve.  He continued to turn out for Spurs in war-time games and was made captain of the team, playing 136 times and scoring 10 goals.  He also appeared in three war-time internationals. In 1944 he retired from playing after a serious ankle injury and took over the management of Clapton Orient, as Leyton Orient were then called.

His tenure was to be short-lived though due to complications suffered after a thrombosis had affected his legs and by the time football had resumed in 1946 Hall sadly had had both his legs amputated.  Tommy Lawton mirrored the public’s mood in his book My Twenty Years of Soccer, when he wrote, “What a tragedy it was that Willie should lose both his precious legs, the legs that had thrilled us all in football for many a year.”  Notts County and Spurs both held testimonials for him, with over 30,000 turning out to White Hart Lane on 7 May 1946 to see a Spurs XI take on an FA XI.

After a period coaching and managing in the non-league with Chelmsford and Chingford he left the game and became a publican.   A measure of his fame and the regard that he was held in for how he had dealt with his disability was that in 1959, some 13 year after the end of his career, he was the subject of the This Is Your Life TV programme and presented with the famous red book by Eamonn Andrews.  Inscribed inside were the words  “Willie Hall – football genius and true gentleman, your brand of unique courage has inspired all who have known you.  Your kindness and humour have brought solace into the lives of all you have met.  This book is intended as our tribute and token of appreciation.”

Willie Hall passed away on 22 May 1967 aged 55 and a trophy, the Willie Hall Memorial Trophy, was inaugurated for teams in Newark to compete for, and is still played for today, and a plaque was unveiled earlier this year at the primary school in Lovers’ Lane, Newark where Hall began his tentative steps towards football immortality.  When looking back at his career perhaps there are no more fitting words than those written by Stanley Matthews when he wrote, “He was the most unassuming of men, modest to a fault. His unselfish play and great contribution to a game was never truly appreciated by the sports writers of the day.”

One of the Premier League’s biggest clubs is to honour Newark’s most famous footballing son.

Willie Hall

Willie Hall

Tottenham Hotspur are taking back the original Willie Hall Cup they donated to the Newark Alliance league almost 50 years ago.

It was presented in memory of Willie Hall, scorer of the fastest international hat-trick of all time.

Spurs, with the approval of the Newark Alliance, want to exhibit the trophy in a museum at the club’s proposed new stadium.

Mr Dennis Rawle, from the Alliance, said: “Willie Hall is the most prestigious player from our area and that is why his memorial trophy is still played for by every team in the Newark Alliance to this day.

“He is the best player Newark has produced.

“In return for us giving them the trophy back, I’m hoping someone from Tottenham can come and present the Willie Hall Cup to the winners of the 2017 competition, which will mark both the cup’s and Alliance’s 50th anniversary.”

Hall wrote his name into the history books when he scored a 3½-minute hat-trick for England against Northern Ireland at Old Trafford on November 16, 1938.

In total he scored five in England’s 7-0 win.

In 1967, the year Willie Hall died, Tottenham donated a trophy to the newly-formed Newark Alliance.

It was presented to the winners of the league’s main cup competition.

The Willie Hall Memorial Trophy was presented for more than 40 years before being replaced with a newer trophy.

Representatives of the Alli-ance will travel to London to present the original trophy to Tottenham.

Mr Andy Porter, a Spurs historian, said: “We will be extremely proud to display the original trophy in our lounges and, when we move to the new ground, the planned museum.

“We were one of the clubs and organisations that made a donation back in 1968 to keep his memory alive.

“His five-goal haul against Northern Ireland in 1938 makes him unique among the England players listed on our international honours board.

“He was one of the most prominent players of his era.

“To students of Spurs’ history he was a star of our 1930s team.”

Willie Hall’s nephew, Mr Mick Gill, of Newark, said handing back the cup was appropriate.

Willie Hall was a schoolboy international and a member of the Ransome and Marles side that won the Notts Alliance title in 1929-30.

Notts County signed him in 1930 when he was 18 and after 35 appearances and eight goals, he moved to Tottenham in 1932.

He was capped ten times by England.

Football legend Tommy Lawton once said: “Willie Hall was a ball player of the highest class.

“He could make a football do the most alarming tricks.”

Poor health ended Willie Hall’s playing career in 1945.

After his enforced retirement he became the first Spurs player to be awarded a benefit match.

The game on May 7, 1946 attracted a crowd of 30,220 and raised more than £3,000 for him.

After being a publican in London, Willie Hall returned to Newark in 1954 to be near his sister.

He had to have the lower parts of both his legs amputated because of thrombosis.

He died from a heart attack in 1967 six days after seeing his beloved Spurs beat Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Cup.

Can you see the plaque on the wall of Lovers’ Lane School Playground? 

During the Second World War Willie continue to play in friendly matches for Spurs whilst also being a member of the London Police Reserve.

Sadly ill-health brought an end to his playing career in 1944 and 1945  he suffered the amputation of both lower parts of his legs. He continued his association with the game as a Vice-president of the Spurs Supporters Club and in coaching roles at Clapton Orient and other clubs. Testimonial games were played at both Tottenham and Notts County grounds in 1946. From 1954 he became a publican.

Willie’s Hall fame was enhanced on 16th February 1959, when he was chosen as the subject of This is your life by B.B.C. Television host Eamonn Andrews.

Born on 12th March 1912 in Newark, Nottinghamshire, England.

 When George Greenfield, the Tottenham inside forward broke his leg with the team on a good run in the Second Division, manager Percy Smith had to find someone to come in to cover and he went out and picked up Willie Hall from Notts. County.  The 20 year old cost £2,500 and was regarded as a good purchase, as the youngster fitted in straight away and helped the side to promotion to the top flight.  So well did Hall do in the Tottenham team that he caught the eye of the England selection committee and was selected to play for his country against France in December 1933 at home at White Hart Lane, which cost Tottenham another £500 in what was an early condition of a transfer fee.

Originally a schoolboy prodigy, Willie made the Notts. County first team at the end of the 1930-31 season and stayed with his club until 1932, when he made his Spurs debut.  Playing between the defence and the attack, Hall used his dribbling skills and his willingness to chase 

chase back to join the two parts of the team together.  His partnership with Willie Evans saw him regularly release the Welshman down the wing and create openings. 

It was only a year after joining Tottenham that Hall first won an England cap and that debut in 1933 was added to with nine further caps, scoring nine goal sin the process, including five against Northern Ireland at Old Trafford on 16th November 1938, which included the fastest hat-trick for England, coming in 3½ minutes and all five came in 30 minutes.  His scoring record was outstanding, but when the war came, it interrupted his international career, as well as his club career.  He could not join the forces, because he had sustained injuries while playing football which ruled him out of signing up to go to war, but Willie still managed to play a total of 136 war-time games, hitting 10 goals for Tottenham, while he served in the local London police reserve.

Spurs played well in the 1932-33 and ended the season as runners-up to gain promotion to the First Division and followed that up with another good season in gaining third place in the top flight in 1933-34.  However, in a match at Maine Road, three Manchester City players crunched Hall in a tackle and he required surgery on a cartilage tear, which kept him out for five months and the rest of the season was a struggle, with Willie just coming back for the tail-end of the campaign and despite his return signalling an upturn in fortunes, the team finished rock bottom, being relegated back to Division 2.

Willie dropped deeper in the side to fill in at full-back and he was selected for England in three war-time internationals against Wales.  During World War Two, Willie also played as a guest at Brighton and Hove Albion.

 

Sadly, he suffered from ill health and had to retire from playing and in 1945 suffered amputations of both legs.  Such was his service to Tottenham respected, the club held a testimonial game against an FA XI at White Hart Lane on 7th May 1946, with a 30,220 crowd paying to see the match and providing £3,000 for Hall’s needs.  There was also another game staged for him in Nottingham to help him out.

Although handicapped by no longer having the full use of his lower limbs, he continued to play a part in the game with coaching stints at Clapton Orient, Chelmsford City and Chingford Town.

He was so popular with the fans that he was appointed as the Vice-President of the Spurs Supporters Club when it was first formed and after his retirement, Hall took over the Archers pub in Osborne Street, London EC1.

Perhaps he was a trend-setter of his day, as Hall was one of the first footballers to be feature don the TV programme “This Is Your Life.”

On This Weekend In Football: Willie Hall Scores England’s Fastest Ever Hat-Trick

WILLIE’S PLACE IN HALL OF FAME

SUNDAY’S MATCH AT OLD TRAFFORD IS THE 65TH ANNIVERSARY OF A TRULY REMARKABLE ACH

http://www.thefa.com/england/News/2003/73734

Sunday’s match at Old Trafford is the 65th anniversary of a truly remarkable achievement – Willie Hall scored what is still the quickest ever international hat-trick…

English football history is littered with great players who did their country a great service but whose achievements, having come in an era before mass media coverage of football, are now consigned only to faint memory and the record books.

George William Hall, better known as Willie, was one such player. Between 1933 and 1939, Hall won ten caps for England, scoring nine goals – a strike rate that any modern day forward would be proud to have.

Having signed for Tottenham Hotspur from Notts County in December 1932 for a then-massive £2,500, Hall made his England debut against France in December 1933 at, appropriately enough, Spurs’ White Hart Lane.

Five years and five further caps later came Hall’s great moment. In a Home Championship match between England and Northern Ireland at Old Trafford on 16 November 1938 – exactly 65 years ago this Sunday – Hall scored three goals in three and a half minutes to register what is still the fastest ever hat-trick in international football.

His goals came after 36, 38 and 40 minutes and followed up Tommy Lawton’s header on eight minutes. An inspired Hall then struck twice more after the break before Stanley Matthews finished things off with a goal fifteen minutes from time.

Not only is that hat-trick still a world record but Hall’s five goals also equalled Steve Bloomer’s 1896 record of the most goals in a match by a single player for the Three Lions. Malcolm Macdonald would become the third player to achieve five in a game 37 years later.

Hall ‘s career all but ended with the outbreak of the Second World War but in total he made 34 League appearances for Notts County, scoring seven times and 205 appearances for Tottenham, knocking in 27 goals.

George ‘Willie’ Hall died in the town of his birth, Newark, in May 1967.

England: V Woodley, W Morris, E Hapgood (c), C Willingham, S Cullis, J Mercer, S Matthews, G Hall, T Lawton, J Stephenson, J Smith

Northern Ireland: Twoomey, Hayes, Cook, Brolly, McMillen, Browne, Cochrane, Stevenson, Baird, Doherty, Brown

Goals: Lawton (8), Hall, (36, 38, 40, 55, 65), Matthews (75)

Referee: Peter Craigmoyle (Scotland)  Attendance: 40,000

Hall made his name at Notts County and, in the matchday programme for their FA Cup First Round tie against Shildon, the Magpies ran a great article all about the life and times of the player. For more, check out nottscountyfc.co.uk

 NALHS Plaque to Willie Hall – Our Nottinghamshire

http://www.ournottinghamshire.org.uk › … › Newark and Sherwood › Newark

 

4 Sep 2013 – ‘NALHS Plaque to Willie Hall‘ by ROGER PEACOCK from Our  George William Hall was born in a humble home at 12 Tenter Buildings;

 Willie Hall – Newark’s forgotten hero and England record holder NEWARK-born Willie Hall was a national hero – but hardly anyone remembers the talented inside forward these days. Hall was not a noted goalscorer. Yet he earned his place in the history of the game after scoring a record five goals in a row in a 30-minute spell, either side of half-time, for England against Northern Ireland at Old Trafford on November 16, 1938. Hall, who formed a lethal partnership with Sir Stanley Matthews, struck three times in only three-and-a-half-minutes. It was the fastest hat-trick in international football. George William Hall was born in Newark in March 1912 and was educated at Lover’s Lane School in Newark. A schoolboy international, he was a member of the Ransome & Marles side which won the Notts Alliance title in 1929-30. His brothers, Cyril and Harry, were also footballers. Hall signed for Notts County in 1930, at the age of 18. But Spurs snapped him up two years later (after 35 appearances and eight goals) for a fee of £2,600, plus another £500 if he won an England cap. Rejected for Army service on health grounds, he served with the London Police Reserve instead. Hall turned out for Spurs during the Second World War and went on to captain the side. He made his international debut in a 4-1 win against France in December 1933 and was capped ten times. He played against the Rest of Europe and also played in three wartime internationals against Wales. An ankle injury ended his career in 1944 and he took over as manager at Clapton Orient. At the time he was the youngest manager in the Football League. He also had spells at Chelmsford City and Chingford Town. Hall later suffered from ill health. He had a thrombosis and had both legs amputated after a series of failed operations. Testimonial games were held for him in London and Nottingham in 1946. Nottingham Forest manager Billy Walker put out a Combined XI against an FA XI on September 18. The Combined XI featured three Forest players – Billy Baxter, Bob McCall and Tom Johnston – along with Leon Leuty, who was a member of Derby County’s 1946 FA Cup-winning team. Leuty cost Notts County a record £20,000 when they signed him from Bradford in 1950. An engineer at Rolls-Royce, he captained the side until his untimely death, from leukaemia, at the age of 35. Johnston and Baxter also went on to play for Notts County. Johnston scored 92 goals in 286 games, while Baxter made 153 appearances before joining Grantham Town in 1954. When he retired in 1952, McCall was appointed groundsman at the City Ground and also coached the A team. The FA XI featured some of the greats – Frank Swift, Billy Wright, Len Shackleton, Stan Cullis, Tom Finney and Raich Carter. Albert Stubbins opened the scoring in the 25th minute but the Combined side hit back in the second half with two goals in five minutes from Shackleton and Edwards. Wilf Mannion got a deserved equaliser four minutes from time. Combined XI: Middleton (Chesterfield), McCall (Nottingham Forest), Cater (West Ham), Baxter (Nottingham Forest), Leuty (Derby County), Blenkinsop (Grimsby), Hancocks (Wolves), Shackleton (Bradford), Edwards (Aston Villa), Rowley (Manchester United), Johnston (Nottingham Forest). FA XI: Swift (Manchester City), Scott (Arsenal), Hardwick (Middlesbrough), Wright (Wolves) Cullis (Wolves), Forrest (Bolton), Finney (Preston), Mannion (Middlesbrough), Stubbins (Liverpool), Carter (Derby County), Mullen (Wolves). Hall opened a sports shop with Spurs team-mate Vic Buckingham and in 1954, he became a publican. His life story was featured on television by Eamonn Andrews on ‘This is Your Life’. Hall died in 1967, aged 55, after suffering a heart attack at his sister’s house in Newark, just days after watching his old side Spurs beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

Willie Hall spent more time with his sister back in Newark, with new skills in fishing, and nostalgic sharing with old friends. He was happy person, on 20th May 1967, having watched Tottenham beat Chelsea 2:1 in the F.A. Cup. Sadly Willie died of a heart attack six days later on Monday 26th May 1967.

The Villa hit ten past RHP Social Reserves to book a place in the quarter-finals of the Willie Hall Cup

appier times... Lowdham are pictured with the Willie Hall Trophy after their penalty shoot-out win in May.

Lowdham United, who won the Willie Hall Trophy for the third time in their history in May and also gained promotion to the Newark Alliance Senior Division, have withdrawn from the league because of a lack of players.

Formed in 1992, the club have also won two Pat Jepson Memorial Trophy Finals and the Notts Junior Cup in the last ten years, but this season they have struggled to field a team because of summer departures, and their last league outing ended in a 20-0 defeat at the hands of reigning champions Farndon United.

The Alliance has already seen five clubs pull out in the close season, with Barkestone-le-Vale, EBS Shelford, Coddington Reserves, Crown FC and Zenith joining the withdrawals of Senior Division BG Hawtonville and Division One side Balderton Athletic during the last campaign, but the Willie Hall holders are the most high-profile of those deciding to call it a day.

Super-sub Johnson seals cup win

1:54pm Wed May 01, 2013

Premier Division leaders Wheatsheaf United secured silverware for a second successive season as they came from behind to beat RHP Social 2-1 to lift the Sam Arnold Memorial Trophy.

Substitute Matt Johnson heads the winning goal to secure the Sam Arnold Memorial Trophy for Wheatsheaf United. (280413DM5-5)

Substitute Matt Johnson heads the winning goal to secure the Sam Arnold Memorial Trophy for Wheatsheaf United. (280413DM5-5)

Second-half goals from Marlon Waites and Matthew Johnson saw the Sheaf — Willie Hall Cup winners last season — turn the game around after Stuart Bennett had put RHP in front in the first-half. 

The result will bring back memories of RHP’s Sam Arnold final defeat last season, when they lost 2-1 to Coddington, while Wheatsheaf more than avenged their Willie Hall semi-final defeat to RHP earlier this year.

Ricky Brewer, who had been booked not long before, teed up Bennett for the opener on 22 minutes when he crossed for the target man to convert from six yards into the top left corner. 

RHP took their lead into the break, prompting Wheatsheaf boss Jonathan Nussey to shuffle his pack, Paddy Ryan replacing Lewis Cracknell. 

The first 20 minutes of the second-half saw little action until Nussey brought Johnson on for William Pycroft, a move that changed the game. 

Three minutes later, Johnson crossed for the prolific Waites, who made no mistake from three yards out to level the scores. 

Johnson put the Southwell side in front 15 minutes before the end when he firmly headed home from Jonathan Upton’s fine cross from the left wing. 

RHP manager Lee Julian brought on Alex Hales and Ben Porter as the Greens desperately sought to fight back, but Wheatsheaf held on to clinch their first trophy of the season. 

Nussey said: “It’s the first time we have won the Sam Arnold and it feels really good. 

Wheatsheaf celebrate with the cup. (280413DM5-14)

Wheatsheaf celebrate with the cup. (280413DM5-14)

“We have put the pressure on RHP now, they’ve lost two cup-finals, and it will give us a good feeling when we play them in the league again. 

“We have got a great chance of pulling off our first double in history now, so now we want to make sure we win the league as well.”

RHP Social will play Wheatsheaf United in the league on May 19, the last weekend of the season.  Wed May 01, 2013

Sapper William Pride is buried in Newark cemetery but his name has never been put on its memorial.

He committed suicide on 11th September 1918 at a military camp in Kent. At the time it was common to omit the names of those who took their own lives. His family including grandson Mr Stephen Pride of Bancroft Road, Newark, have been seeking to get his name on the memorial for two years.

Sapper William Pride’s name added to Newark war memorial – after two-year campaign

The name of a first world war soldier from Newark, has finally been added to a war memorial after two years of campaigning.
Sapper William Pride’s name was engraved onto the Memorial to the Fallen in Newark Cemetery yesterday, which by coincidence was the the 96th anniversary his death.

Sapper Pride, who served with the Royal Engineers, committed suicide in 1918 at a military camp in Kent while the balance of his mind was disturbed by his experiences of combat.

He had served with the Water Transport Corps ferrying wounded soldiers from the frontline in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, while under constant shell-fire.

His name was omitted from the town’s roll of honour after the war because of the stigma attached to suicide at the time.

It was sadly a familiar story replicated up and down the country as soldiers, seamen and airmen who took their own lives or were shot for cowardice were refused inclusion on war memorials.

Many would have had what we now understand to be post-traumatic stress disorder.

The wrong was finally righted yesterday when the name of Sapper William Pride was engraved on one of the memorial’s granite monuments.

Sapper William Pride’s great granddaughter, Cherilyn, talks about his name being added to the war memorial

Sapper Pride had already been recognised as a casualty of war by the Commonwealth War Grave Commission and honoured with one of its headstones on his grave which is in Newark Cemetery.

Pete Stevens of Balderton, who works for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, discovered the omission and launched a campaign backed by the Advertiser and Sapper Pride’s descendants.

After strong lobbying, Newark Town Council, who own the cemetery, agreed in July to change the criteria for inclusion on the war memorial which meant Sapper Pride’s name could finally be added.

The work was carried out on Thursday. It was done by Mark Gill, the workshop manager at E. Gill and Sons of Newark and letter cutter Roger Smeeton.

A stencil was placed on the memorial and the name was then sandblasted near the bottom of the final column of first world war names.

Mr Gill said: “It was a shame it was not put on originally but I am pleased that the criteria has changed so it could be added.”

Sapper Pride’s great grandaughter Cherilyn Pride of Southend Avenue, Newark, visited the cemetery just after the work had been completed. She said it was wonderful to see his name finally on the memorial.

“Pete Stevens really got the ball rolling and the Advertiser has been a great help,” she said.

“I always hoped that his name would be added and I am very pleased that it has been. I feel it is important that people see the names of the brave men who sacrificed so much.”

Mr Stevens said it had taken a long time to sort the matter out.

“In the end we have done what we set out to achieve,” he said.

“It is right and fitting that Sapper Pride’s name is on the memorial.”

Sapper William Pride Grave In Newark Cemetery

It is believed the stigma that would have been attached to his suicide was why his name wasn’t included on Newark’s 1921 Roll of Honour that was used as the basis for the Memorial to the Fallen.

Mr Stevens said: “He died while the balance of his mind was disturbed through service.

“He has been recognised by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission as a casualty of war and has one of our headstones.”

His widow was issued with a dead man’s penny with his name on. They were given to those whose lives were lost as a result of the first world war, further evidence, says Mr Stevens, that his name should be on the memorial.

William Pride’s great-granddaughter, Cherilyn Pride, said: “People in Newark ask me what the town council is doing about putting William’s name on the memorial.

Sapper William Pride’s family brought together by campaign to get his name included on war memorial The family of Sapper William Pride placed crosses and flags at his graveside. Back, Elena Hill, of Southend Avenue, Newark; Mr Jeff Gill, of Doncaster; and Miss Cherilyn Pride, of Southend Avenue, Newark. Front, Mr Stephen Pride, of Bancroft Road, Newark; and Mr Peter Kay, of Woodthorpe.

The grandson of a First World War soldier whose experiences drove him to suicide says his name should have been added to a memorial in time for commemorations marking the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the conflict.

he omission of Sapper William Pride’s name from the Memorial to the Fallen in Newark Cemetery was first raised with the town council nearly two years ago.

It was only last week that the council agreed the criteria that must be met for names to be added.

William Pride’s grandson, Stephen Pride, of Bancroft Road, Newark, said: “The fact that his name won’t be on the memorial in time for the commemorations is a frustration. He should have been added by the time the world comes to remember them.

“This has been going on for nearly two years. It should have happened by now.

“They’ve dragged their feet and there’s a family here who just wanted what was right.

“To have him there though, in the final analysis, is what we wanted. He will be there for all eternity with his comrades and the injustice will be at an end. William will never be forgotten again.

“These lads went out there and stood and fell for their flag. The greatest sadness is that 100 years on it is still going on in the world and we haven’t learned from it.”

The Advertiser first highlighted the case two years ago and Mr Pride said: “Without the help of the Advertiser this wouldn’t have happened.”

Since finding Sapper Pride’s grave, the Prides have researched his life and have found an extended family.

They will all gather at his grave on August 3 and place a palm cross there.

Sapper Pride is acknowledged as a first world war casualty with a Commonwealth War Graves Commission headstone in Newark Cemetery.

His great-grand-daughter, Miss Cherilyn Pride, has discovered his name is on a war memorial at Christ Church, Newark.

She said: “It would have been nice to have this resolved before the start of the first world war commemorations.

“We should be in an era where we’re proud of the men and women who fought for our country.”

Sapper Pride, of the Royal Engineers, committed suicide in 1918 at a military camp in Kent.

His Army record and the coroner’s report show he took his own life “whilst of unsound mind.”

At the time it was common to omit from war memorials the names of those who took their own lives or who were shot for cowardice, many of whom would now be diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Sapper Pride ferried wounded soldiers from the frontline in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, with the Water Transport Corps when he was aged 40. The barges operated under constant shell-fire.

His omission from the Memorial to the Fallen was discovered by Mr Pete Stevens, who works for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

“This has dragged on for nearly two years,” he said. “It’s beyond a joke.

“I’m very disappointed with how long it’s taken to agree criteria for names to appear on the memorial

“Sapper Pride suffered terribly from what he had seen.”

The town clerk, Mr Alan Mellor, said it was too late to get Sapper Pride’s name on the memorial in time for next month’s first world war commemorations, but he hoped it would be done by Armistice Day, on November 11.

Mr Mellor told the Advertiser: “It has taken some research to gather the background information. We had to go back and search through a number of records and documents to get a clearer idea of what we needed.

“Getting together with the Royal British Legion also took a little while.

“I have not had any discussion with Mr Pride’s relatives about getting a resolution by a particular date. We have had correspondence with them but I haven’t corresponded with them recently.

“We will get in touch with the family to discuss where we’re at.

“There is now a process in place and we will consider Mr Pride and any other requests that are made.

“We didn’t have a policy on this, but now we do and we have a process. I don’t agree that the council has acted in a manner that is not reasonable.”

Families of first world war servicemen buried in Newark Cemetery, of whom there are believed to be 49, have been invited to put a poppy cross on their graves at noon on August 3.

Criteria agreed by Newark Town Council for including names on the war memorial

1) The purpose of the Memorial to the Fallen is to commemorate the names of those people who would be considered as being a casualty of war. This position is supported by the existing names on the memorial that are grouped together according to the war/conflict they served in.

2) The memorial is solely for those people who served in the Armed Services.

3) They lost their lives:

– Being killed in action.

– As a result of their injuries suffered while in action.

– While serving in the Armed Services abroad during a period of conflict.

4) A residency qualification; that they lived or had lived in Newark. Newark is defined as the electoral boundary of the town council at the time the person died.

5) Future requests that do not fall within these criteria will be considered by the council in conjunction with the Royal British Legion.

We Remember The Fallen 

Published on Jul 18, 2013

During World War One, Some 306 British and Commonwealth soldiers were shot for desertion or cowardice, most of them were sentenced after a short trial at which no real opportunity for defence was allowed , today it is recognised that several of them were under age when they volunteered and that many of them suffering from shell shock or post traumatic stress disorder,

Andy Decomyn’s statue shot at dawn is modelled on Private Herbert  Francis Burden, of the 1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers, who was Shot at Dawn at Ypres in 1915, aged 17.

Pardoned for the 306 soldiers shot at dawn for ‘cowardice’ 

At the age of 16, Private Herbert Burden lied that he was two years older so he could join the Northumberland Fusiliers and fight in the war. Private Herbert Burden, was sentenced to death for desertion.

All 306 soldiers of the First World War who were shot at dawn for cowardice or desertion were granted posthumous pardons, the Ministry of Defence. 

Des Browne, the Defence Secretary, has decided to cut short a review that had been prompted by campaigns to exonerate the men, and emergency legislation was put before the House of Commons . The news was greeted with joy by the family of Pte Harry Farr, who was executed during the Battle of the Somme in 1916 for cowardice in the face of the enemy.

 100_0325

Laurencegoff

The names of Herbert Francis Burden and those others who suffered the fate of being shot at dawn are listed on the stakes arranged in the form of a greek theatre around the statue, symbolising the tragedy that these events signify. Many of the posts say Age unknown and this is because many young men lied about their age in order to enlist for their country. Many of them had no representation at court-martial because most of the officers had been killed when they went over the top. The average life expectancy of an officer on the front line was around 10 weeks. We know of these 306 soldiers, but we do not know the total figure because between 80pc and 90pc of those sentenced to die had their sentences commuted and were probably sent to jail or hard labour.

Many visitors ask about the Shot at Dawn location of the memorial in the Arboretum, it seems appropriate that it should be on the eastern edge where dawn strikes.
The six trees facing the posts represent the firing squad, all aiming for the medal around the statue’s neck and none of them knowing who had the fatal bullet, it must have been very traumatic for them too, having to shoot one of their own.

The Campaign For a Pardon,
After the 75 year Secrecy Act was lifted, Members of the Shot at Dawn Organisation started Campaigning for a Pardon, 
The campaign commenced in 1992 and was led by Janet Booth who sought a pardon for her grandfather. Private Harry Farr, janet’s grandmother had lived with the shame and stigma of her husband being shot for cowardice in 1916. She believed he was wrongly convicted and actually suffering from shellshock , Harry Farr’s family took the Ministry of Defence to the high court and won, in 2006 a posthumous pardon was granted for Harry and the other men that were Shot and Dawn.

Kitchener was a British military leader and statesman who, as secretary of state for war in the first years of World War One, organised armies on an unprecedented scale. He was also depicted on the most famous British army recruitment poster ever produced.

Horatio Kitchener was born on 24 June 1850 in County Kerry, Ireland. He was educated in Switzerland and at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich. In 1871, he joined in the Royal Engineers. He took part in the unsuccessful operation to relieve General Charles Gordon at Khartoum in 1884-1885, and in 1886 was appointed governor general of eastern Sudan. Six years later served he became commander in chief of the Egyptian army. In 1896, he began the reconquest of Sudan from the forces of al-Mahdi, culminating in the Battle of Omdurman and the reoccupation of Khartoum in 1898. Kitchener was then made governor of Sudan, having become a national hero.

In 1900, Kitchener was appointed chief of staff to Lord Roberts, British commander in the Boer War. When Roberts returned to England, Kitchener was left to deal with continuing Boer resistance. His ruthless measures – including the use of camps to imprison civilians (the origin of the term ‘concentration camp’) – were much criticised.

On returning to England in 1902, he was created Viscount Kitchener (he was made an earl in 1914) and was appointed commander in chief in India. In 1911, he became the proconsul of Egypt, serving there and in the Sudan until 1914. When war broke out, Kitchener reluctantly accepted the appointment of secretary of state for war. Unlike many in government and the military, he foresaw a war lasting for years, and planned accordingly. He rapidly enlisted and trained huge numbers of volunteers for a succession of entirely new ‘Kitchener armies’.

But his cabinet colleagues did not share the public worship of Kitchener and he was gradually relieved of his responsibilities. His support for the disastrous Dardanelles operation, combined with the ‘shell crisis’ of 1915, eroded his reputation further. Sent on a mission to Russia in June 1916, he drowned on 5 June when his ship, HMS Hampshire was sunk by a German mine off the Orkneys.

Mr Brian Clark-Dench, 74, of Balderton, whose uncle features on the Newark Memorial To The Fallen. The project, which aims to put faces to the 603 names on Newark’s Memorial To The Fallen at Newark Cemetery, is being coordinated by Mr Pete Stevens, a Commonwealth War Graves Commission stonemason. He hopes to find all of the pictures in time for the 100th anniversary of the start of the first world war in 2014. The Newark memorial names 456 Servicemen who died in the first world war and 144 casualties from the second world war. Also named are one Serviceman who died in West Africa in 1961, one who died in Malaya in 1952, and one in Afghanistan in 2007. Mr Stevens is seeking pictures to a further 45 names from the first world war on the memorial in St Giles’ Church, Balderton, and 13 from the second world war. Mr Stevens has set up a website to add each picture collected to the details of the casualty on one of the war memorials.The website can be viewed at 

www.memorialphotoproject.tumblr.com

So far those who have come forward to help with the project include Mr Brian Clark-Dench, of Gibson Crescent, Balderton, whose uncle, Mr Alfred Charles Dench, is one of the names on the Newark memorial. Mr Dench, who was born in Winthorpe and lived on Middlegate, Newark, for most of his life, served in 1st Battalion King’s Company of the Grenadier Guards. He was killed in 1915 at the village of Loos, France, at the age of 23, and was later buried to the north-west of the village.

Over the years Mr Clark-Dench has compiled and collected military items related to his uncle, including his original dog tags, campaign medals, postcards sent from France, photographs and even his death notice, signed by Field Marshall Herbert Kitchener, British Secretary of State for War from 1914-16. Mr Clark-Dench, who served in the same battalion as his uncle during the 1950s, said: “When I saw the article in the Advertiser I was amazed and wanted to come forward and help. “I never knew my uncle but I do feel the need to keep his memory alive because his story is an interesting tale. “He was held in high regard as being a real hard man, strong as an ox. “During battle he saved his company commander from No Man’s Land, despite being under heavy enemy fire — this was the type of man he was.“Coming forward to help with the project is very important because the men on the memorials should be remembered — what they did for this country should never be forgotten. “I am immensely proud of what my uncle did and the rest of my family — that is something I wanted to honour.” Any relative of one of the fallen featured on either memorial and who has a photograph of them or who can help in any way can contact Mr Stevens via Petejstevens@hotmail.co.uk  

or contact the Advertiser newsdesk on 01636 681234. The Newark project mirrors a much bigger scheme to find photographs of as many as possible of the 72,000 British and Commonwealth casualties of the Battle of The Somme, whose names are commemorated on the French Thiepval Memorial To The Missing.

“We should honour and respect all our war heroes ” 
1914 – 1818
William Pride died with honour, a coroner ruled the balance of his mind was disturbed following active service.
His Army record report shows he took his own life “whilst of unsound mind,” which, it is now said, would be recognised as post traumatic stress disorder. His last day was at a camp in Kent just two Months before the end of First world war on 11th September 1918 following frontline service.  The Commonwealth War Graves Commission class William Pride as a casualty of war. William served with the Royal Engineers in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, operating hospital barges ferrying wounded soldiers away from the front under constant shell-fire.
William’s widow and wife during his 1st world war service Mrs Priscilla Pride they also had five Children.  She was issued with the dead man’s penny with William’s name on it. These were distributed to those whose lives were lost as a result of the first world war. I am happy to have his photo and medal put on displayed at Newark Cemetery Chapel Interpretation Centre.

 She also received his campaign medal, it reads “He died for Freedom and Honour”.
He is buried in Newark Cemetery and has a war memorial tombstone.

William Pride grandson, Mr Stephen Pride, and his daughter Cherilyn, William’s great-granddaughter, came across his story while researching their family tree.

Mr Pete Stevens, who is a resident of Balderton and works for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, he has also discovered William’s story and called for his name to be added to the memorial to the fallen inside Newark Cemetery.

The town council John Rush from the Royal British Legion have since meet to discuss William’s case. A discussion took place at last evening E&L Committee meeting at Newark Town Hall.

We await to hear from the town clerk Alan Mellor, together with his family I would like to to see his name added to the war Memorial.

Honours The Fallen All Year Round

WWI soldier ‘should be on memorial’

 Thursday Nov 22, 2012

A decision not to allow the name of a first world war soldier to be added to Newark’s war memorial has been branded a scandal

Mr Pete Stevens at the grave of William Pride, marked by a Commonwealth War Graves Commission headstone.

Mr Pete Stevens, who works for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, says William Pride’s name should be on the Memorial to the Fallen in Newark Cemetery.

William, a Royal Engineers sapper, who lived in Newark, committed suicide following frontline service.

His Army record and the coroner’s report show he took his own life “whilst of unsound mind.”

Mr Stevens has been told William does not fit the criteria for inclusion on the memorial.

Mr Stevens said the Commonwealth War Graves Commission had categorised William as a casualty of war with one of its headstones, so his name should be added.

William operated hospital barges that were under constant attack as they transported casualties.

Mr Stevens believes the stigma that would have been attached to William’s suicide was why his name wasn’t included on the 1921 town Roll of Honour.

It was common to omit from war memorials the names of those who took their own lives or were shot for cowardice when they were actually shell-shocked or battle-fatigued — the condition is now recognised as post-traumatic stress disorder.

William’s name was not on the list agreed by Newark Town Council and the Royal British Legion in 2007 when plans for the Memorial to the Fallen were being considered.

“The scandal is not his suicide but the refusal to add him to the Memorial to the Fallen and right that wrong,” said Mr Stevens, of Balderton.

He discovered the omission of William Pride from the memorial by chance during research on another project.

“One can only imagine the noise, the smell and the constant cries of the wounded and the toll this would have taken on a man,” he said.

“I feel it was these horrors and the worsening of William’s disability that drove him to take his own life.

“No one understood post-traumatic stress disorder back then but we do now.

“The Government pardoned those shot for not going over the top and their names have been added to their local memorials, so why not William Pride? We must demonstrate we have moved on.”

Mr Geoff Meakin, from the Newark branch of the Royal British Legion, said: “Mr Pride doesn’t fit the criteria to go on the memorial so will not be added.

“You have to have lived or been living in the old borough of Newark and to have fallen in battle — that’s the difficulty.

“His suicide does not come into it.

“I sympathise and it’s often a contentious issue.

“If you relax the criteria for one, it opens the floodgates. These are the criteria and we must stick to them.”

Mr Stevens said there were 29 graves in Newark Cemetery of men whose names were on the memorial who did not die in battle but from wounds or other effects of their service.

“There is one man whose name appears who died in the sanatorium at Radcliffe in 1925,” said Mr Stevenson

William Pride was an engine driver and fireman with the Trent Navigation Company.

He lived on Bowbridge Road, Newark, with his wife and five children when he was called up for service on September 18, 1916 at the age 40.

He was enlisted into the Water Transport Corps of the Royal Engineers and, 19 days later he was on his way to Mesopotamia where he operated hospital barges ferrying wounded soldiers away from the front.

The barges operated under constant shell-fire.

William developed arthritis in both knees that got so bad he was invalided to India, arriving back in England on June 6, 1918.

He was sent to a camp in Kent and placed on light duties. He was found on September 11, 1918 with his throat cut and a razor in his hand.

Comrades reported he had been depressed.

The clerk to Newark Town Council, Mr Alan Mellor said: “We are and will be looking into this and will be speaking with all appropriate interested parties.”

Memorial to the Fallen at Newark Cemetery commemorating those military personnel who lost their lives in conflict since 1914

Let’s Remember them, On the 11th hour, of the 11th Month in 1918 the First World War ended. Newark still wants to Remember those who have given and give today their lives for peace and Freedom.

If ye break faith with us who die, We shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders fields.

His poem has stuck with me since I first read it as a young lad, and I have always, when abroad, visited nearby war cemeteries to pay my respects to those that lay in a foreign field far from home.

I’m still a traditionalist and observe two minutes silence at 11 Date on the 11th Hour of the 11th Month. Those, and sadly there are a few, that feel this is an inconvenience, fail to grasp that they are only here because of our forces.

Interestingly the idea of the two minutes silence was a very Commonwealth merging of ideas based on an old idea to a very solemn occasion.

The true originator of the Silence on Remembrance Day was an Australian reporter working in Fleet Street called Edward Honey, who wrote a piece about it.

This was subsequently read by Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, an astute South African statesman who contacted Lord Milner to put the proposal to King George the Fifth, who put the official seal on the idea and authorised its adoption. But the idea all started with a journalist  the power of the press.

Respect their sacrifice.

Today, the sale of poppies helps the Royal British Legion’s charitable work helping safeguard the welfare, interests and memory of those who are serving or who have served in our Armed Forces.

Regardless of which side, left or right, that you wear your poppy, just wearing one shows you remember and care. It’s when we stop remembering and caring that tyrants start to rear their ugly heads.

The whole object is to remember and endeavour as a people working together, to ensure that such losses never happen again, or at the very least every peaceful solution sought.

It is not to glorify war as some factions have tried to claim, but to honour the individual human as well as the forces as a whole, that have tried to defend mankind and democracy.

They have ensured our freedoms, and they and their memory, rightly deserves our respect.

 That is why we wear the poppy.

The colour of the poppy is red, as Colonel John McCrae saw them and the last three lines of his poem are:

IN FLANDERS FIELDS

by Colonel John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row by row,  That mark our place,’ and in the sky The larks still bravely singing fly, Scarce heard among the guns below.  We are the dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow –  Loved and were loved,’ and now we lie in Flanders Fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe! To you from failing hands we throw The torch – Be yours to hold it high! If ye break faith with us who die, We shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders fields.

When you wear your Poppy, it is not just for those that laid down their lives in what was the nightmare of carnage of the First World War; it is for all those brave men and women who have lost their lives in all the wars and conflicts, that we have had the unfortunate nature to be in.

 Our forces, built up of exceptional men and women, endeavour to protect our freedoms and this nation as a whole.

The immortal poem, ‘In Flanders Fields,’ was seeded from the simple Corn Poppy . It was brought to Europe from the Holy Land  and has now become the symbol of Remembrance of all those who died in the wars of this century.

In Flanders, the simple, yet beautiful little Corn Poppy grows everywhere. During the First World War, Colonel John McCrae, a Canadian veteran of the South African war, looked out from his water logged trench during a lull in the fierce fighting at the second battle of Ypres… His eyes met the sickening sight of makeshift crosses… rows and rows… the ghastly relics of the first battle which had drenched the battlefield with blood.The Canadian Medical Officer was struck with admiration at the sight of the little red poppies… swaying gently in the breeze over the graves of the dead.McCrae was so moved at the sight, he took out his note pad and pencil and wrote the poem…In Flanders Fields.In 1918, Colonel John McCrae was severely wounded and he was moved from the makeshift front-line field hospital in a dugout to a rear-base hospital near Calais… he had asked to be moved to the coast area so that he could see the white cliffs of Dover from across the Channel.On the third night he fought his last fight… he succumbed to his wounds… but in the last fleeting seconds before the Reaper called… Colonel McCrae whispered… “Tell them this… if ye break faith with us who die…we shall not sleep.” And with that…the gallant Colonel was gone. That very night he was buried in the cemetery at Wimereux.In November 1918… after four years of almost incessant fighting… came the Armistice. The Great War was over… the terrible carnage was at an end. France had lost its life blood of youth for about seven million had perished.After the misery of war… the truth that it was all for nothing became very clear when the disabled and shell-shocked Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen were cast-off overnight as unwanted. Touched by the plight of the war disabled, Madame Yvonne Guerin proposed that the women of France should make artificial red poppies and sell them throughout the world in order to raise money for the war disabled, for after all, it was they who had given them their freedom.In England the idea caught on and Field Marshal Haig proposed a factory, where British Soldiers who, had been injured during the war, could be employed making red silk poppies. Sponsored by the British Legion it brought in much need money for the relief of those disabled in the war.Today, millions of red poppies are sold throughout Britain. The red petals of the poppy signify the vast ocean of blood spilt… the yellow and black centre for the mud and desolation of the battlefields…the green of the stem is symbolic of the fields where many brave Soldiers fell.

Box full of memories from 100 years ago

http://newarkadvertiser.co.uk/articles/news/Box-full-of-memories-from-100-years-ago

TWO brass tins sent to troops in the first world war containing items such as chocolate and tobacco are among the mementos one woman has saved.

Annette Hambidge with some of the mementos. 180114DT4-5

Annette Hambidge, of Lower Kirklington Road, Southwell, has a wooden box containing the two tins, medals, postcards, photographs and cap badges that belonged to her grandfather, Mr James Webb, and great uncle, Mr George Hutchinson, in the war.

The two decorative tins were sent to the troops over Christmas 1914 as a gift from Princess Mary, the daughter of King George V and Queen Mary.

They contained chocolate, tobacco and a small Christmas card, which read “best wishes for the New Year from friends at home.”

Annette said: “I would have thought a lot of people have a box stashed away at home with bits and bobs like this. I just had it stored in the bottom of a wardrobe.

“Both my great grandfathers fought in the first world war. As well as the tin we’ve got various bits and pieces, including pictures.

“I have had the box for about six years, and my mother had it before me.

“James died when I was three so I only remember him as an old man. It’s amazing to see him in the pictures as he was then. He was a big man with size 15 feet.”

Mr Webb rose to the rank of sergeant major with the Royal Berkshire Regiment and won prizes for his swordmanship.

Mr Hutchinson served in the Merchant Navy and his Merchant Navy medal is among the items.

Annette said her favourite item was a small cap that her grandfather fitted on the bowl of his pipe.

“His pipe was a treasured possession and he was never without it, so it is a very personal thing,” she said.

“The cap would stop the glow of the tobacco being seen by enemy snipers, so although a small item it saved lives.”

She said he would have had it with him when he lay wounded in a shell-hole for three days after being caught in a blast.

Mr Webb was taken back to England for treatment. He later returned to the front.

 The 4th of August 2014  100th aniversary of the declaration of war by Great Britain on Germany. We have around 500 names on the 2 memorials, but that is all they are just names I think it would be fantastic to put faces to as many names as we can. Names on a memorial mean little to the younger generation, But if we can put faces to these names and find a place to display them then they will be remembered for ever. It will be a mammoth task to achive this but with your support I believe it can be done.

Woolfitt, Philip Canadian Btn 88th Btn., and 43rd Btn.,Born 1897, Died 1916During the First World War, both local newspapers, the Newark Advertiser and the Newark Herald ran extensive coverage on local casualties, which are of great interest and value for those researching their family history from this period.The following articles appeared in each newspaper:NEWARK HERALD – 4th November 1916 PTE PHILIP WOOLFITT DIES OF WOUNDS The many friends of Mr & Mrs W P Woolfitt of New Balderton, will learn with much regret and sympathy of the death from wounds of their eldest son, Pte. Philip Woolfitt, of the gallant Canadians.  Pte. Woolfitt, who was only 19 years of age in August last, was an old Magnus boy, and upon leaving school went out to Victoria, British Colombia,  five years ago, to his grandfather, Mr Tomlinson.  For the last two years before enlisting he was learning surveying and was engaged with his uncle, Mr Nowell Johnson, working under government.  As soon as he had turned the age of 19, and had finished his engagement, he joined the 88th Battalion of Canadians at Victoria in December last and came over to England in June when he had a few days leave and re-joined his parents at New Balderton near Newark. Returning to camp he volunteered to join a draft and was transferred to the 43rd Canadians, being sent to France early in August.  He was in the firing line about a month when he was severely wounded on October 9th, being wounded through the right arm, left hand, slight wound in the head, and a severe shrapnel wound in the hip, which caused complications.  He arrived in England on 17th and was sent to King George’s Hospital, London where he underwent several operations.  He was treated with the best medical skill possible and with every care and attention, but owing to septic poisoning and haemorrhage, no hopes were entertained of saving the young life and his parents were sent for and they were able to be present when he passed away most peacefully, practically in his sleep, at 10.15 on Wednesday night. The greatest sympathy is extended to Mr and Mrs Woolfitt in their great loss. The funeral, which will be of a military character, will take place this afternoon.  There was a service in the Parish Church at 2.30pm, and the interment was at Newark Cemetery at 3.20pm.NEWARK ADVERTISER – November 8th 1916 (p.5)MILITARY FUNERAL AT NEWARK  CEMETERY Pte Philip Woolfitt: died of wounds.  With full military honours, the mortal remains of Pte. P Woolfitt (eldest son of Mr & Mrs W P Woolfitt, New Balderton) who died of wounds sustained in France, were laid to rest in Newark Cemetery on Saturday.  Deceased, who was 20 years of age, was an old Magnusian, having won a scholarship from the Mount School. After leaving school he went out to Victoria, British Columbia, to his grandfather, Mr J H Tomlinson.  During the last two years of his stay in the Colonies he was learning surveying with his uncle, Mr Norwell Johnson.  As soon as he was 19 years of age he joined a Canadian Battalion, and came over to England in June.  Early in August he was drafted out, and after being about a month in the firing line he was badly wounded in the right arm, left hand, slightly in the head, and severely in the hip. He arrived in England on 17th and was sent to King George’s Hospital London where he underwent several operations.  Owing to septic poisoning and haemorrhage, no hopes were entertained of his recovery, and his parents were sent for.  He passed away practically in his sleep at 10.15pm on Wednesday night, 1st November 1916 on All Souls’ Night.THE FUNERAL The funeral service was conducted by the Vicar of Newark (Canon W Paton Hindley), and the obsequies were attended by a firing party, bugle and drum and fife band of the Royal Engineers.  The first part was in the Parish Church, where the hymn “How those glorious spirits shine” was sung.  Mr W T Wright, A.R.C.O., presided at the organ. The chief mourners were Mr & Mrs W P Woolfitt (father and mother), Misses Eva and Nora Woolfitt (sisters), Masters Donald and Albert Woolfitt (brothers), Mrs F E Hoe (aunt), Mr and Mrs W H Tomlinson and Mr H S Whiles.  Amongst those also present were Rev. H Gorse (headmaster), and scholars from the Magnus Grammar School, Mr G B Friend, Ald. J C Wright, Ald. L Priestley, Mr C H Whitehouse, Mr and Mrs T A Watford, Mr G B Heading, Mr F Allott, Mrs. Garner (Commandant of the VAD Hospital, Lombard Street, Newark), Miss Garner, Mrs M H Colton, Mr E Winter Rose, and others.  The cortege, as it wended its way towards the Cemetery, was headed by the Royal Engineers band playing the Dead March.  Then came the firing party, walking with arms reversed.  When near the Cemetery gates the band played “Abide with me”, and lined up each side of the entrance to allow the body, enclosed in an oak coffin, on which was the Union Jack and deceased’s cap, to pass through to the burial place.  After the Vicar had concluded reading the burial service, the customary three volleys were fired over the grave, and the buglers sounded the “Last Post”. In addition to the family wreaths, beautiful floral tributes were sent as follows:With deepest sympathy from Uncle Albert, Auntie Jane and Auntie Fanny.In loving remembrance of dear Phil., from Aunty Lill and Uncle Billy (Hoveringham).In loving sympathy from J W P Hall.From Mr and Mrs E Harker and family, with deepest sympathy.With deepest sympathy from Mr and Mrs Otter and family.In loving sympathy from Mrs Heppenstall and Miss Heppenstall.With deepest sympathy from Mr and Mrs B Newbound.With sincere sympathy from Mrs Wright and the Misses Parnham.With kind remembrance and deep sympathy from Mr and Mrs VasonWith love from Mrs H M Coles.In affectionate remembrance from Lieut. and Mrs J H W Ford and family.From Elizabeth Anderson “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God”With deepest sympathy for a dear friend – Frank Slater.With deepest sympathy from Mrs H M Colton and family, South Scarle Hall.With deepest sympathy for a young life nobly sacrificed for his country’s cause, from a few friends at the Brewery Office.With pride in an old schoolfellow and in deepest sympathy, from the boys of the Magnus Grammar School.Photo: Illustrative image for the 'WOOLFITT, Philip' page

TOUCHING TRIBUTE In the course of his sermon on Sunday morning, the Vicar (Canon W Paton Hindley) made a touching allusion to the death of Pte. Woolfitt.  He quoted from a letter written by the Chaplain of King George’s Hospital, who said: “He died at 10 p.m. last night, and all of us who have come in touch with the dear boy have felt that it was fitting that he should be called away on All Saints’ Day.  His sheer goodness has inspired us all.  His patience and cheerfulness were wonderful all through for he has been suffering much pain.  On Sunday morning he received Holy Communion with much joy and devotion – we have lost a lot of boys since July, but in no case do I remember such a wide-spread feeling of sorrow and sympathy in the Hospital as was felt today.Private Philip Woolfitt – 1897-1916 – who had gone to Canada and enlisted in the Canadian Infantry (Manitoba Regiment) and died on 1st November of 1916 aged 19.  He is buried with his parents William and Emma, in Newark cemetery, and was the elder brother of Sir Donald Wolfit (1902-1968), the actor (who changed the spelling of his name later in his career).  The family lived on London Road, Balderton, where a plaque to Donald was erected in 1974.

Abide with Me

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
Earth’s joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word,
But as Thou dwell’st with Thy disciples, Lord,
Familiar, condescending, patient, free.
Come not to sojourn, but abide with me.

Come not in terrors, as the King of kings,
But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings;
Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea.
Come, Friend of sinners, thus abide with me.

Thou on my head in early youth didst smile,
And though rebellious and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee.
On to the close, O Lord, abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death’s sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

Major Samuel Boyd Quibell(1890-1916) Obituary from “The Times” – Major Sam. B. Quibell, 4th East Yorkshire Regiment (T.F.), who died of wounds in France on February 5, was the eldest son of Mr. And Mrs. Oliver Quibell, of Shalem Lodge,Newark. He was educated at the Magnus Grammar School, and the Leys School, Cambridge. On leaving school, he joined his grandfather Mr. J.H. Holmes, the head of the firm of Messrs. Thomas Holmes and Son, tanners, of Hull. He had been in the Cadet Corps at school, and while at Hull obtained a commission in the 4th East Yorkshire Regiment (T.F.) six years ago. He was gazetted captain when 22, and attained his majority on the field, and being only 24 years old was the youngest major in the Territorial Force. He went to the front with his regiment on April 23 and took part in the second battle of Ypres, after which he was the senior officer, the commanding officer and 17 officers of the battalion having been either killed or wounded. He was wounded twice within three weeks. On the first occasion, while helping wounded officers of another regiment to a dressing station, he received a slight wound in the neck. He recovered within a few days, and returned to duty, but soon afterwards he suffered a gunshot wound in the chest, which proved fatal. A brother officer writes :– ”We shall miss him greatly, but his cheery example will not leave us, and he will be present to encourage us on to do our bit as he did his. He was cheerful even in our greatest trial, and we feel we must do our utmost to feel the same, although it is most difficult.”

A Volunteer at Newark Cemetery  
Perhaps the biggest difference that this has made to me by Volunteering has been a life-changing experience for me. It will provide you with a new outlook and lease on life. You will understand better than most people how you fit into the family history of who is buried in Newark Cemetery since 1856. Make no mistake about it, this is an experience that you won’t want to miss. I had the most unbelievable experience for the last ten years. It not hard work but hugely rewarding, I met so many great people and learnt so much about the Cemetery environment. An experience I will never forget and recommend to everyone.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row by row,That mark our place,’ and in the sky The larks still bravely singing fly, Scarce heard among the guns below. We are the dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow – Loved and were loved,’ and now we lie in Flanders Fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe! To you from failing hands we throw  The torch – Be yours to hold it high! If ye break faith with us who die

When you wear your Poppy, it is not just for those that laid down their lives in what was the nightmare of carnage of the First World War; it is for all those brave men and women who have lost their lives in all the wars and conflicts, that we have had the unfortunate nature to be in.

Right or wrong their being in any war or conflict that is the fault of politicians who should, but sadly seldom are, be held accountable to us the people. Our forces, built up of exceptional men and women, endeavour to protect our freedoms and this nation as a whole.

Memorial 603 that lost their lives in conflict since 1914 to the present day. Tribute at Newark Cemetery War Memorial to the Fallen

The First World War 1914-1918

Battle of the Somme and life in the trenches

Wreaths laid at the annual ceremony held at Lochnagar Crater, in Remembrance of those lost on 1st July and the subsequent fighting in the Battle of the Somme 1st July – 18th November 1916. In World War I, the “trenches” were literally trenches dug into dirt or mud to shelter soldiers while they were firing at the enemy. Both sides used them in the fighting. Trench warfare was primarily a defensive tactic, placing soldiers low in the trench for protection, installing barbed wire in front of them in more modern times, and then allowing the soldiers to shoot at the enemy. Trench warfare has been used militarily since Roman times, although it came into widespread use in World War I. The trenches were, of course, dirty. They could often become crowded, so any kind of wound sustained in the trenches was likely to become infected.

A Volunteer at Newark Cemetery 2015
Perhaps the biggest difference that this has made to me by Volunteering has been a life-changing experience for me. It will provide you with a new outlook and lease on life. You will understand better than most people how you fit into the family history of who is buried in Newark Cemetery since 1856. Make no mistake about it, this is an experience that you won’t want to miss. I had the most unbelievable experience for the last ten years. It not hard work but hugely rewarding, I met so many great people and learnt so much about the Cemetery environment. An experience I will never forget and recommend to everyone.

An exhibition examining the life the lives of soldiers and residents of Newark during the first world war will open at Newark Cemetery Chapel Interpretation Cemetery by appointment or on the 2nd Sunday April – October 2015 from 2-4pm. The First World War exhibition contained pictures and biographies of soldiers who fought and died in the war, and objects and memorabilia from that time. Friends of Newark Cemetery are happy to give their support.

World War 1 – 100 years ago

 Four years is not a long time – but in four years a boy in his early teens grows into a young man and in four years the generation of British and Commonwealth lads born in the mid 1890s would come of age and go to war.  In 1914 they went to The Great War, the War to End All Wars – and many never came home.

You may not know their names – but you can find them easily.  From the biggest city to the smallest hamlet they are on memorials – some are simple plaques others grander affairs – and if you cross to France and Belgium and further afield you will see the names on the white headstones ranged like soldiers on parade in cemeteries on the old battlefields.

2014 will mark the 100th anniversary of what we now sadly know as The First World War – it would never be The War to End All Wars.  As we look back over the century we should remember that these men did not die in vain – they fought a war that, like the one that followed only 25 years later, was necessary to contain the territorial ambition of a major European power.  About one hundred years before the outbreak of the First World War British and Allied troops had defeated France at the Belgium village of Waterloo – and contained a major European power.

Remember the courage and honour the sacrifice of the boys who became men 100 years ago and support the young men and women who have followed in their footsteps and are today’s soldiers.     

 

Spirit of Remembrance believes that it is important to promote events relating to the 100th Anniversary of the First World War.

I have been walking around Newark cemetery since  2004. In 2005 we set up a group Friends Of Newark Cemetery, I have been Chairman for the last three years. I had an opportunity to have a blog for the last four years and I have had 35,700 visit across the UK, and the World. Many kind words which I really enjoy and appreciate from people that have contacted me. It has intrigues me, something that makes me want to look into who is buried and history going back to 1856, which has been fascinating.

FOR THE SAKE OF EXAMPLE
He woke to the sound of a far distant gun
Corporal said softly ‘you ready old son?’
He gave him a drink, it didn’t taste right
They stood quietly waiting, until it was light.

The Padre came in, looking sombre and sad
He muttered low words that were lost on the lad
The others stood stiffly, then moved to the door
He still wasn’t certain what all this was for.

They took him outside as the fingers of dawn
Spread over the courtyard so sad and forlorn
He saw them, his comrades, all standing in line
Not one if them looked at him, or gave him a sign.

They pinned a white rag on, they gave him a chair
His comrades stood ready, cruel shots filled the air
So back to the trenches, more terror to sample
He’s dead, they knew why, for the sake of example.

They had all watched him die, in a foreign land
