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

Great-granddaughter Cherilyn Pride pictured at Sapper William Pride’s 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3) They lost their lives:

– Being killed in action.

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

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

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

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

We Remember The Fallen 

Published on Jul 18, 2013

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

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

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

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

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

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

 100_0325

Laurencegoff

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

www.memorialphotoproject.tumblr.com

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Honours The Fallen All Year Round

WWI soldier ‘should be on memorial’

 Thursday Nov 22, 2012

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“His suicide does not come into it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The barges operated under constant shell-fire.

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

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

Comrades reported he had been depressed.

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

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

Ministry of DefenceMinistry of DefenceMinistry of DefenceMinistry of DefenceMinistry of DefenceMinistry of DefenceMinistry of DefenceMinistry of DefenceMinistry of DefenceMinistry of Defence

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Respect their sacrifice.

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

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

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

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

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

 That is why we wear the poppy.

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

IN FLANDERS FIELDS

by Colonel John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

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

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

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

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

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

Box full of memories from 100 years ago

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He trained new recruits to use bayonets.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Abide with Me

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

An exhibition examining the life the lives of soldiers and residents of Newark during the first world war we opened Newark Cemetery Chapel Interpretation Cemetery by appointment.  The First World War exhibition contained pictures and biographies of soldiers who fought and died in the war, and objects and memorabilia from that time. Friends of Newark Cemetery are happy to give their support.

11th Anniversary 2016
Friends of Newark Cemetery meeting, we would welcome you. This will be held on Wednesday 27th July 2016, 2pm at Town Hall Newark in the Pickin room.

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

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

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

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

The First World War 1914-1918

Battle of the Somme and life in the trenches

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

World War 1 – 100 years ago

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

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

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

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

 

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

During the fighting in Europe against the German Army in WW1, a number of soldiers from the British Army were executed at dawn, they were deserters, or shot for cowardice against their enemy. Special firing squads of 12 were selected to carry out the dreadful order to execute as many as…

I have been walking around Newark cemetery since  2004. In 2005 we set up a group Friends Of Newark Cemetery, I have been Chairman for the last three years. I had an opportunity to have a blog for the last four years and I have had 40,000 visit across the UK, and the World. Many kind words which I really enjoy and appreciate from people that have contacted me. It has intrigues me, something that makes me want to look into who is buried and history going back to 1856, which has been fascinating.

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

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

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

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

They had all watched him die, in a foreign land
A warning to others from the High Command.

Pictures come in for project, thanks to The Newark Advertiser

http://www.newarkadvertiser.co.uk/articles/news/Pictures-come-in-for-project

Photographs of ten fallen heroes have so far been found for a pictorial project to honour Newark’s war dead.

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 Laurence Goff via 01636-681878 –  07794613879,  The Newark project 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.

Thanks

On January 22nd 1879, during the Zulu War, the small British field hospital and supply depot at Rorkes Drift in Natal was the site of one of the most heroic military defences of all time. Manned by 140 troops of the 24th Regiment, led by Lieutenant John Chard of the Royal Engineers, the camp was attacke by a well-trained and well-equipped Zulu army of 4000 men, heartened by the great Zulu victory over the British forces at Isandhlwana earlier on the same day. The battle began in mid afternoon, when British remnants of the defeat at Isandhlwana struggled into the camp. Anticipating trouble, Chard set his small force to guard the perimeter fence but, when the Zulu attack began, the Zulus came faster than the British could shoot and the camp was soon overcome. The thatched roof of the hospital was fired by Zulu spears wrapped in burning grass and even some of the sick and the dying were dragged from their beds and pressed into the desperate hand-to-hand fighting. Eventually, Chard gave the order to withdraw from the perimeter and to take position in a smaller compound, protected by a hastily assembled barricade of boxes and it was from behind this barricade that the garrison fought for their lives throughout the night. After twelve hours of battle, the camp was destroyed, the hospital had burned to the ground, seventeen British lay dead and ten were wounded. However, the Zulus had been repulsed and over 400 of their men killed. The Battle of Rorkes Drift is one of the greatest examples of bravery and heroism in British military history. Nine men were awarded Distinguished Conduct Medals, and eleven, the most ever given for a single battle, received the highest military honour of all, the Victoria Cross.

You will understand better than most people how you fit into the family history of who is buried in Newark Cemetery since 1856. Make no mistake about it, this is an experience that you won’t want to miss.

“I had the most unbelievable experience for the last nine years. It not hard work but hugely rewarding for me. I met so many great people and learnt so much about the Cemetery environment. An experience I will never forget and recommend to everyone.”

  1. Dear Mr Goff,
    Thank for your hard and important work.
    Thank you for preserving the memory of the fallen heroes.

    I am working on a Wikipedia article about General Klimecki.

    Would it be possible for you to take a picture of his grave and publish it?
    Do you mind if I refer to your blog from the Wikipedia article?

    Is there anything we could help with your noble mission?

    Thank you in advance,
    Andrew B., Marietta, GA, USA
