The 4th of August 2016 is the 102 anniversary of the declaration of the 1st World War.

4th August 1914

In response to a German invasion of Belgium the United Kingdom declared war on Germany.

Men from Newark and the surrounding villages flocked to enlist in the new Eighth Battalion of The Sherwood Foresters Regiment.

10th August 1914

A rally was held in Newark Market Place by the new Battalion of the Sherwood Foresters Regiment.

They were marched that day to Radcliffe-on-Trent. After an overnight stay they marched on to Derby on the next leg of their journey that would take them through training camp and eventually to the trenches in France.

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.

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.

This being the centrepiece is a statue of a young man ­ age 17 Private Herbert Burden of the 1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliess who was the first to be shot. He was blindfolded and strapped to a post, surrounded by 306 other posts, each with the name, age and ­regiment of a man who was executed.

Conceived as a place of national remembrance not only for the fallen, but also for those who have served the nation. There are over 300 memorials the centrepiece of which is The Armed Forces Memorial. There is also a memorial to those who were ‘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 first  being Private Herbert Burden, of the 1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers, was shot at Ypres, Belgium on 21st July 1915 aged 17. 

The memorial was modelled on the likeness of  Private Herbert Burden, 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.

There are over 20 memorials here with links to WW1. The thought-provoking Shot at Dawn memorial commemorates the 306 British and Commonwealth soldiers who were shot during the war for cowardice or desertion. The names of those shot, now pardoned, are inscribed on posts surrounding a statue of a young soldier, blindfolded, awaiting his fate. It is located in the east of the Arboretum so that it is the first point to be touched by the light of dawn each day. Visit  Featured Memorials page to learn more about The Shot at Dawn Memorial and others.

 

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is the story of how the red field poppy came to be known as an internationally recognized symbol of Remembrance.

From its association with poppies flowering in the spring of 1915 on the battlefields of Belgium, France and Gallipoli this vivid red flower has become synonymous with great loss of life in war.

Giant flagPoppy Day .... R.I.P to all soulsGiant flagPoppy Day .... R.I.P to all soulsGiant flagPoppy Day .... R.I.P to all soulsGiant flagPoppy Day .... R.I.P to all soulsGiant flagPoppy Day .... R.I.P to all soulsGiant flagPoppy Day .... R.I.P to all souls

Yet the scope of the poppy and its connection with the memory of those who have died in war has been expanded to help the living too. It was the inspiration and dedication of two women who promoted this same “Memorial Flower” as the means by which funds could be raised to support those in need of help, most especially servicemen and civilians suffering from physical and mental hardship as a result of war.

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 on the 11th of the 11th. 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.

Let’s 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:

Ben ParkinsonBen ParkinsonGiant flagGiant flagBen ParkinsonBen ParkinsonGiant flagGiant flag

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.

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.

Honouring lives of past cadets

Air cadets, led by, left, Flight-lieutenant Mark Edwards and Pilot Officer Nick Squire, of the Newark squadron, march to the war graves section at Newark Cemetery.  

Fourteen members of 1260 Squadron Newark Air Training Corps marched to the war graves, where the Newark team curate, the Rev Tim Pownall-Jones, led a service at the grave of Keith Couzin-Wood.The service followed research by the cadets into the plane crash that killed him, aged 16, on July 29, 1942.Keith, who was on his first flight, was in an RAF Hampden bomber from 408 Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force, when it stalled and crashed soon after take off from RAF Balderton.The crew, who also included another cadet, Geoffrey Hughes of Chesterfield, and two flying officers, were all killed.It is hoped the memorial service, on the Saturday closest to Keith’s death, could become an annual event. Mr Pownall-Jones said: “Those young men stood out because of their uniform and what that uniform still represents.“The young men and women here today are champions of the same core values of the services.”He said the values were teamwork, initiative, dedication and being young at heart, and that the first letters of those words spelt tidy. He said when the cadets

checked their uniforms were tidy they should think of those values.

Cadet Andrew Tallis (13) lays a wreath in memory of Sergeant Michael Patton. 

During a minute’s silence flags were lowered by corporal Sam Parkes (16) and Mr Robert Doyle, the standard bearer for Newark Royal British Legion.

Mrs Karen Grayson, the mother of a current cadet, Kristian Grayson, read a poem called Somebody’s Darling.

Cadet Joe Parkes (14) laid a wreath. 

The Mayor of Newark, Mr Harry Molyneux, said: “The youngsters wanted to serve their country but little did they know what could happen to them. They were very brave.”

Keith was from Leigh-on-Sea and his father’s family were from Southwell and Normanton. The cadets tracked down Keith’s nephew, who is in his seventies and lives in Australia.

One of the pallbearers at Keith’s funeral was Mr Jack Stringer (85) of Grosvenor Road, Balderton. He was unable to attend the ceremony due to illness and was represented by his wife, Mrs Irene Stringer (83).

She said her husband, who was a corporal in the RAF stationed at Balderton, was sorry he could not be there. 

The cadets also honoured Sergeant Michael Patton, a former cadet of the Newark squadron, who died in September 1996 when he fell from an RAF helicopter during an exercise over south Wales. 

Cadet Andrew Tallis (13) laid a wreath beside a memorial tree and plaque for Sergeant Patton near the London Road entrance to the cemetery.

Mr Patton’s niece, Miss Natalie Henstock (24) of Newark, represented his family. 

She said her grandparents, Mr and Mrs Brian Patton, of Bathley, who are Mr Patton’s parents, and her mother, Ruth Hughes, of William Street, Newark, who is Mr Patton’s sister, were unable to attend. 

Mr Patton’s father-in-law, Mr Chris Grant, of The Park, Newark, attended along with his wife, Mrs Doreen Grant.

The cadets, who meet at their Sherwood Avenue headquarters on Tuesdays and Thursdays, are looking for adult helpers.

Behind the Remembrance Poppy

This is the story of how the red field poppy came to be known as an internationally recognized symbol of Remembrance.

From its association with poppies flowering in the spring of 1915 on the battlefields of Belgium, France and Gallipoli this vivid red flower has become synonymous with great loss of life in war.

WWI soldier ‘should be on memorial’

http://newarkadvertiser.co.uk/articles/news/WWI-soldier-should-be-on-memorial-

SAM_1918

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.”

First World War, wartime service burials were not strongly regulated and many of those who died in this country were laid to rest in locations chosen by their families, often in family graves scattered throughout Newark cemetery grounds. A team from Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) have been restoring the graves stones in Newark Cemetery and location around Europe.

 The 4th of August 2014 is the 100th aniversary of the declaration of war by Great Britain on Germany

We have 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. This will be a mammoth task to achieve in our interest with your help and support. I believe it can be done.

Pete Stevens his project has been launched to match photographs to all the names on the Newark and Balderton war memorials. There are 603 names on Newark’s Memorial To The Fallen at Newark Cemetery, of whom 456 are first world war casualties. Another 144 are from the second World War, one died in West Africa in 1961, one in Malaya in 1952 and one in Afghanistan in 2007. There are 45 names from the first World War on the memorial in St Giles’ Church, Balderton, and a further 13 from 2nd World war.

 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 ho 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.

Newark-On-Trent is also important internationally, as it contains the Commonwealth and Polish War Graves

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.

“They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted; They fell with their faces to the foe. They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.” From For the Fallen by Laurence Binyon

THE RED POPPY

A History

Synonymous with War Memorials are the red poppies worn on Remembrance Day, Nov.11th ( originally known as Armistice Day ). The origin of the poppy tradition rests with three people, Major John McCrae* a Medical Officer with the 1st.Canadian Contingent at the battle of the Ypres salient in May 1915. Miss Moira Michael, Secretary of the American YMCA and Madam Guerin, Secretary French YMCA.

Apalled at the slaughter caused by the seventeen day Ypres battle Major McCrae wrote the following poem:

In Flanders’ Fields

In Flanders’ Fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid 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.

Published in the London magazine ‘Punch’ December,1915, it received wide publicity.

Miss Moira Bell Michael, a teacher,was so impressed with the poem she wrote the following:

“We Shall Keep The Faith”

Oh! You who sleep in Flanders’ fields, Sleep sweet – to rise anew; We caught the torch you threw; And holding high we kept The faith with those who died. We cherish, too, the Poppy red That grows on fields where valour led. It seems to signal to the skies That blood of heroes never dies, But lends a lustre to the red Of the flower that blooms above the dead In Flanders’ Fields. And now the torch and poppy red Wear in honour of our dead Fear not that ye have died for naught We’ve learned the lesson that ye taught In Flanders’ Fields.

and made a decision to always wear a Flanders poppy “to keep the faith”.

In November 1918 Madame Guerin attended a convention of YMCA Secretaries from the Allied Nations and met Miss Michael, greatly impressed with Miss Michael’s idea of the Flanders poppy as a badge of remembrance she took the idea back to France from where it quickly spread amongst the Allies of WW1. In 1919 the newly formed British Legion adopted the Flanders Poppy as it’s official badge of remembrance followed by the Australian RSL in 1921. In 1922 a factory for the manufacture of poppies for distribution in Britain and Northern Ireland was established in the Old Kent Road, London under the supervision of Major George Howson MC to provide employment for disabled soldiers. As demand increased larger premises were required so in 1925 a move was made to premises in Petersham Rd., Richmond, SW London where it remains to the present day. At one time the factory employed some 365 people producing 45 million poppies per annum; today, with improved production methods, 44 people are employed at the factory with another 90 home workers,only ex-Service persons or their relatives qualify for employment. Production for the 2006 ceremony will be 36 million poppies ( 650,000 buttonhole type) 105,000 wreaths 750,000 crosses 5 million petals In addition to the above the factory also produces a special corsage of five poppies for the Queen to wear and wreaths for the Special Air Services Regiment, the SAS wreaths differ from the norm having a central plaque of the SAS badge surrounded by dark and light blue leaves interspersed with white carnations

“Worn to remember the nation’s war dead, the red poppy is a widely recognised emblem. Millions of poppies were sold last year and the appeal raised £30m for the Royal British Legion’s charitable work. But what is the etiquette of wearing one? 1. Should you wear one? The poppy commemorates those who have died in war. The tradition was started by American teacher Moina Bell Michael, who sold silk poppies to friends to raise money for the ex-service community. In 1920 the poppy was proclaimed the national emblem of remembrance in the US, and in the UK, the first poppy day was in 1921. Last year Britons bought 26m poppies, but others choose not to. Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow famously refuses to wear one on air, reportedly saying he does not want to bow to “poppy fascism” 2. What colour to wear – red, white or purple? Red is most popular, but the lesser-seen white poppy dates from 1933, when the Women’s Co-operative Guild wanted a lasting symbol for peace and an end to all wars. But the Royal British Legion refused to be associated with their manufacture, and so the Co-operative Wholesale Society took on production. The intention was not to offend the memory of those who died in the Great War, but many veterans felt white poppies undermined their contribution and the lasting meaning of the red poppy. Feelings ran so high that some women lost their jobs in the 1930s for wearing white poppies. Critics argue the red poppy already encompasses the sentiments of white one, which they say also diverts funds for the Royal British Legion. Then there are purple poppies, worn to remember the animal victims of war and sold by animal charities. 3. When to start wearing one? Many people think poppies should be worn from 1 November until Armistice Day on 11 November. Others pin one on only in the week running up to Remembrance Sunday – 13th November this year. A Royal British Legion spokesman says they can be worn from the launch of the poppy appeal in October. Organisations like the BBC usually choose a day for presenters to start wearing one.  

4. When not in uniform, where should you pin your poppy – left or right. Some people say left, as it’s worn over the heart. It is also where military medals are worn. Others say only the Queen and Royal Family are allowed to wear a poppy on the right, which isn’t true. Then there is the school of thought that says men should wear theirs on the left and women on the right, as is the traditional custom with a badge or brooch. The Royal British Legion spokesman says there is no right or wrong side “other than to wear it with pride”. 5. What size should\b0 it be? The traditional poppy is roughly 7cm from red tip to the bottom of its green stalk and 4cm wide. But other sizes are worn.”(extract from BBC Magazine Oct.2009)

In adopting the Poppy of Flanders’ Fields as the Memorial Flower to be worn by all Returned Soldiers on the above mentioned day, we recognise that no emblem so well typifies the Fields whereon was fought the greatest war in the history of the world nor sanctifies so truly the last resting place of our brave dead who remain in France” excerpt from RSL declaration of 1921.

In spite of the sentiments expressed above the “Poppies” supplied by the WA RSL for sale to the public since 2003 do not replicate Flanders Poppies, having more in common with minature multi petalled roses

WOOLFITT, Philip

Canadian Btn

88th Btn., and 43rd Btn.,

Born 1897, Died 1916

During 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.

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 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.

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.

Remembering those who made the

Supreme Sacrifice

“Every day, every month, not just in November”

In Flanders field the poppies blowBetween the crosses, row on row,That mark our place; and in the skyThe larks, still bravely singing, flyScarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days agoWe lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,Loved and were loved, and now we lieIn Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe:To you from failing hands we throwThe torch; be yours to hold it high.If ye break with us who dieWe shall not sleep, though poppies growIn Flanders fields.

Let’s enjoy the beauty of Newark Cemetery grounds

The Ransome and Marles factory is still on the same site, beside the railway line which led the single Heinkel bomber right to the factory gates.But even small towns and obscure locations were targeted by German bombers. In the market town of Newark in Nottinghamshire, a memorial has been unveiled to 41 workers killed when a ball bearing factory was flattened in a daylight raid. The exact number of deaths will never be known but many workers were killed.

The initial devastating attack was followed up by a second bomber later in the day.

Newark ball bearing factory raid remembered

The 75th anniversary of the Blitz on London and the attacks on strategic industrial cities and ports attracted widespread coverage in 2010.

But even small towns and obscure locations were targeted by German bombers. In the market town of Newark in Nottinghamshire, a memorial has been unveiled to 41 workers killed when a ball bearing factory was flattened in a daylight raid. The exact number of deaths will never be known but many workers were killed.

The factory is still on the same site, beside the railway line which led the single Heinkel bomber right to the factory gates.

During the raid workers dived underneath a huge metal marking table in one of the engineering workshops. Chris Grant, son of one of the workers, said: “Apparently my dad always said that if there was a raid they felt they were always going to be safer getting under this very heavy marking table rather that running out in to the open to go to the air raid shelters.

“But the first bomb to be dropped actually was a direct hit on that marker table.” Many more died as the bomb tore through the workshops. Most of the victims were buried in Newark Cemetery and the funerals lasted four days.

Ransome and Marles was targeted because it made ball bearings for the defence industry – and many ended up in the gun turrets of battleships. The company is now known as NSK and is owned by a Japanese firm.

“Absolutely horrific” Bert Emerson, who will be 90 in 2011, is one of the few survivors of the attack. He said “My wife was a typist in one of the offices and I stopped to speak to her when the first bombs dropped.

“I pushed her to the ground and laid on top of her. All the walls came down – we were covered in glass but we both got up without a scratch.

“Start Quote It’s difficult to realise that it actually happened here in Newark – we didn’t think we were that important.”

Ernest Matchett Eyewitness “If I’d have carried on to the tool room I could have been there when a bomb dropped, so I think I’m one of the luckiest people alive.” Mr Emerson was one of the first-aid workers and after helping survivors he had the task of recovering bodies – and body parts – the next day. “It was really horrifying. It wasn’t until you got home and you sat down and thought about it. “It’s something I wouldn’t want to go through ever again. I was only 19 years old and I’d never seen anyone dead before. “But in those days there was no counselling – you just had to get on with it.”

Another Newark resident who remembers that day is Ernest Matchett, now 85. He said: “It had a terrific impact, there’s no doubt about that. It was absolutely horrific. “It’s difficult to realise that it actually happened here in Newark – we didn’t think we were that important. Things like that never really happen around here – not even during the war.”

For years the only memorial to the 41 workers was a plaque and a tree on the factory site. A memorial incorporating the names of those who died and a piece of wreckage salvaged from the bombed factory was unveiled at Newark Town Hall. Chris Grant, who is a former mayor of Newark, said it had taken some years for the campaign to bear fruit. Many had felt it wrong that members of the armed forces who died were commemorated on a memorial but not those who died making a valuable contribution to the war effort, he said.

“At long last they will be remembered,”

“They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted; They fell with their faces to the foe. They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.” From For the Fallen by Laurence Binyon

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 on the 11th of the 11th. 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.

2014 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.

We Will Remember them

Let’s also Remember the many Polish Airmen that were flying Spitfires fighters with the Royal Air Force during the Battle of Britain. Let’s paid tribute to the contribution made by Polish Airmen. By the end of the 2nd world war, 17,000 Polish pilots and ground crew members had formed 14 squadron in RAF 2.000 were killed with 423 that were buried in Newark Cemetery plus  6 ARAF- Australian,  44 British Servicemen,  17 CRAF- Canadian and  3 RNZAF- New Zealand are also buried in Newark Cemetery.

In 1943 General Wladyslaw Sikorski died on July 4th 1943, when a Royal Air Force aircraft he was travelling aboard plunged into the sea seconds after take-off from Gibraltar.

General Wladyslaw Sikorski wishes were remembered and on Thursday 15, July 1943, his body arrived in Newark and was taken to Holy Trinity RC Church on Parliament Street Newark, NottinghamshireEngland. A Requiem Mass was held and the Catholic Church was guarded overnight.General Wladyslaw Sikorski wishes were remembered and on Thursday 15, July 1943 , his body arrived in Newark and was taken to Holy Trinity RC Church on Parliament Street Newark , Nottinghamshire England. A Requiem Mass was held and the Catholic Church was guarded overnight.The following morning was Friday 16, July 1943 early Masses were held and members of the public were allowed to file past the coffin to pay their respects. Outside the Catholic Church, reporters from across theUK and BBC representatives set up their equipment on top of a nearby air raid shelter. A large crowd gathered in the Newark Streets to see the funeral procession.

Newark Town Mayor, a guard of honour from the Polish Air Force

The history of Polish heroism and support for the British people is long and glorious. During our darkest hours in World War Two, when the Battle of Britain hung in the balance, the contribution of Polish airmen helped tip the balance in the Allies’ favour. Eight Polish fighter squadrons formed within the RAF shot down 629 Axis aircraft by May 1945, with the Polish 303 Fighter Squadron claiming more kills than any other squadron during the war.

Thursday 15th July 1943 General Sikorski body was taken to the former Holy Trinity RC Church on Parliament Street, Newark for an Requiem Mass. His boby stayed overnight. General Sikorski was buried at Newark Cemetery 16th July, 1943. His remains were returned to Poland when it was a free Country 14th September 1993.

All Souls Day, a holiday to remember deceased loved ones. In many devoutly Catholic, people will spend time at  Newark cemetery  remembering loved ones. War veterans and civic dignitaries were among about 100 people at the annual All Souls’ Day service at Newark Cemetery on Sunday. A candle was lit on each of the Polish graves at the service, which honours  Polish Servicemen who died during the second world war. The service was conducted in both English and Polish.

At 3pm there was a procession, led by uniformed Polish war veterans with standards, to the Polish war memorial. The master of ceremonies was the chairman of the Nottingham branch of the Polish Air Force Association, Mr Kazimierz Jablonski.

We will Remember them

The service was opened by Mr Eugeniusz Borysiuk, a representative of the Polish Air Force Association Charitable Trust. He said it was right and proper that the annual All Souls’ Day service took place to remember the 2,000 Polish airmen who lost their lives 423 were buried in Newark Cemetery during the 2nd world war and many more over the years.

Mr Borysiuk said it was also important to remember those who perished but did not have graves, as well as those who survived. Mr Jacek Gajewski, the representative of the Polish Ambassador, said: “Today, it is our duty to remember. To remember them all and we will remember, remember, remember.”

Many thanks to services such as the All Souls’ service  on the last Sunday in October each year that people remembered what the Servicemen did. Mr Gajewski said this was especially important for younger generations.

Let’s thank those people who preserved the Polish graves for over 70 years.

“We are proud to have such strong links with the Polish community and to have the Polish war graves within our cemetery. There is always such a feeling of tranquillity in this area.”

The mayor said that a group of cadets from the Polish Air Force Academy visited the graves earlier this year. She said: “They were all so moved to see first-hand what they had previously been able only to read about and I know it left them thinking not only about the past but also the future.

“Today is such an important commemoration and we must thank all those who continue to ensure the tradition continues.”Father Wlodzimierz Skoczen, of the church of Our Lady of Czestochowa, Nottingham, read prayers, before The Last Post sounded as the standards were lowered. Mr Borysiuk read the roll of honour, first in Polish and then in English, before a minute’s silence that ended with the sounding of Reveille. Wreaths were laid by Mr Gajewski, the chairman of Newark and Sherwood District Council,  town mayor of Newark and Mr Borysiuk.

Mr Marian Soroko laid a wreath in memory of the late president Wladyslaw Raczkiewicz, Mr Adam Ostrowski laid a wreath in memory of the late president Stanislaw Ostrowski and Colonel Zdzislaw Picheta laid a wreath on behalf of the Federation of the Polish Armed Forces Association. About 30 wreaths were laid in total.

This Annual Service of Remembrance On the 4th Sunday in October each year we remember all who have died next date 26th October 2014 .

All Souls this take place on  at 3pm. This annual event that is held on the last Sunday in October each year organised by the Polish Air Force Association. This will start from London Road car park of the Newark Cemetery with a parade of standards With the Newark Town Mayor with members of the UK and Polish supporters with hundreds parading to the large Memorial cross to the Polish and Commonwealth War Graves Section.

Readings:  1st Samuel 15: 34 – 16:13 / 2 Corinthians 5: 6-10 / Mark 4: 26-34

And into that gate they shall enter, and in that house they shall dwell, where there shall be no cloud nor sun, no darknesse nor dazzling, but one equall light, no noyse nor silence, but one equal musick, no fears nor hopes, but one equal possession, no foes nor friends, but one equall communion and identity, no ends nor beginnings, but one equall eternity.

John Donne, Whitehall 1628

The little poem/reflection I read was by John Donne, who was a very famous poet and dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London from the 1600’s.  Through these words, Donne tries to capture the magnitude or the fullness that lies on the other side of the grave.  He does so not in an attempt to diminish our grief or loss, but in a way that gets us thinking about the transition and awakening of our souls that will occur when one finds themselves in the presence of God.

Many Polish Airmen were flying Spitfires fighters for Britain’s Royal Force during the Battle of Britain. Let’s paid tribute to the contribution made by Polish Airmen. By the end of the war, 17,000 Polish pilots and ground crew members had formed 14 squadron in RAF. Let’s Remember that 2.ooo Polish  airmen were killed during the 2nd world war with 397 had been buried in Newark Cemetery. More have be added since.

If it hadn’t been for the brave Polish Air Force we could have struggled and things could have turned very differently. The  Polish airmen helped us win the war for Freedom.  Not enough credit is given to the Polish pilots who went out of there way to helping us in the dark days of the 2nd World war. They never let us down.

“For Your Freedom and Ours”

“The  Forgotten Heroes of World War II”

During the 2nd 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 for all to see from people across the UK Poland and the world.

Many Polish airmen could not return home and, with the help of local people, settled down and became active in communities such as Newark.  Let’s expressed our gratitude for Polish pilots that are buried in Newark Cemetery.  He believed that our triangle of friendship would help us to avoid the mistakes of the past and create a better tomorrow.

Many all of those brave from the British, Commonwealth, Polish, servicemen, and others whatever the circumstances of their death, and may their families and friends find comfort in the knowledge that they were decent, honourable people simply serving their country.

If I Knew

If I knew it would be the last time That I’d see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep. If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more. If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day. If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an extra minute to stop and say  “I love you,” instead of assuming you would KNOW I do. If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, well I’m sure you’ll have so many more,

I can’t let just this one slip away. For surely there’s always tomorrow

to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything just right.There will always be another day to say “I love you,”

And certainly there’s another chance to say our “Anything I can do?”

But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I’d like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight. So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you’ll surely regret the day, That you didn’t take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish. So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear, Tell them how much you love them and that you’ll always hold them dear Take time to say  “I’m sorry,” “Please forgive me,” “Thank you,” or “It’s okay.” And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have no regrets about today.

Members to join the Polish Ambassador, Newark town Mayor, Chairman of Newark and Sherwood District Council, The Royal British Legion and other distinguished guests at the annual ceremony – service. The Warsaw Air Bridge memorial, which reads” In tribute to the 250 men of Britain, the Commonwealth and Poland who sacrificed their young lives in desperate attempts to fly from distant RAF bases in Italy with essential supplies for the front line city of Warsaw during the 1944 uprising.

Laurence Goff Friends of Newark Cemetery this tragedy of the Warsaw Uprising lies not only in the bloody 63 day struggle but also in the immediate and long term aftermath. The Germans were the first to punish Warsaw and its people for daring to defend its freedom. Hitler ordered the city to be all but wiped off the face of the earth and special units were brought in to systematically detonate any building of the remotest importance to Polish culture. The city was effectively destroyed block by block, and when the Russians finally crossed the Vistula to liberate the city, they inherited only ruins.

Street name honour plan for VC hero

http://newarkadvertiser.co.uk/articles/news/Street-name-honour-plan-for-VC-hero

Newark’s only holder of the Victoria Cross could have a street named in his honour.

Members of Newark Town Council suggested a street on a new residential development should be named after William Thomas Marshall.The planning committee was asked to put forward names for the site off Parker Street. Mr Tony Roberts said: “I think someone from the town who won a VC would be fitting.”William Marshall is Newark’s only resident to have been awarded the VC. His citation in the London Gazette of May 21, 1884, said that on February 29 of that year he received Britain’s highest military honour for conspicuous bravery in a cavalry charge at the battle of El Teb during the British Sudan campaign. His commanding officer, Lieutenant-colonel Barrow, of the 19th Hussars, was surrounded by the enemy, severely wounded and on the ground.“Quartermaster-sergeant Marshall seized his hand and dragged him through the enemy back to the regiment. Had Lt-col Barrow been left behind he must have been killed,” said the citation. William Marshall was born in Newark on December 5, 1854, at Cherry Holt Lane.He joined the Army as a private and was promoted through the ranks to later become a lieutenant-colonel. He commanded the Territorial Army in Fife during the first world war and died on September 11, 1920

William Thomas Marshall who was born 5th December 1854 in Newark, Nottinghamshire SERVED: 19th Hussars (Prince of Wales Own) He was 29 years old, and a Quartermaster-Sergeant in the 19th Hussars, British Army, during the Mahdist War, when the following deed took place for which he was awarded the VC.  He later became Quartermaster and Captain in the 19th Hussars. In 1905, as a Major, he became Camp Quartermaster of Aldershot. He retired in 1907. In 1918 he was promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel. DATE OF GAZETTE: 21th May 1884  V.C. CITATION: On 29th February 1884, at El Teb, Sudan, the Commanding Officer Lt Col Percy Burrow was severely wounded; his horse was killed and he was surrounded on the ground by the enemy; Quartermaster Sergeant Marshall rode to his assistance, seized his hand and dragged him through the enemy back to the Regiment, saving him from certain death.  DIED: 11th September 1920 BURIED: Kirkcaldy Cemetery, Fife, Scotland. Members of the Light Dragoons Regimental Association (Scottish Branch) hold an annual reunion and, during the day, they attend a ceremony in memory of Lt. Col. Marshall.  His Victoria Cross is displayed at the 15th/19th King’s Royal Hussars Museum in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England In 1914 he was living at 54 Bowbridge Road, Newark, with his wife Mary and six children, and she was expecting number seven.He enlisted in the 1/8 Battalion Sherwood Foresters Notts and Derbys Regiment on November 26, 1914. On June 28, 1915, 3383 Private Marshall was at the Western Front. He had been in France only 50 days. His children were Florence, Elsie, Alice, May, Frank, Frederick, Edna and Harold who was born on April 28, 1915. William had two brothers, Herbert and Edgar. Edgar was also killed in action. I believe he had five sisters, Kate, Gertrude, Emily, Ethel and Minnie.Medals Awarded to Newark’s only Victoria Cross Recipient William Thomas MarshallVictoria Cross Medal without Bar.pngBorn 5th December 1854

The 4th of August 2014 is the 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.

Pete Stevens has started on this project  which has been launched to match photographs to all the names on the Newark and Balderton war memorials. There are 603 names on Newark’s Memorial To The Fallen at Newark Cemetery, of whom 456 are first world war casualties. Another 144 are from the second World War, one died in West Africa in 1961, one in Malaya in 1952 and one in Afghanistan in 2007. There are 45 names from the first World War on the memorial in St Giles’ Church, Balderton, and a further 13 from 2nd World war.

As a fitting tribute to them,  The views expressed our solely my own and do not reflect  Newark Town Council.

I have been walking around Newark cemetery since  2004. In 2005 we set up a Friends Of Newark Cemetery Group, I have been a member for the last  11 years. I had an opportunity to have this website  with  39,000 visits 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.

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 graveRemembrance Day - Lest We Forget - Poppy Day

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.

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.
