CAN any of your readers provide information to help identify the names of servicemen and women from Newbold who lost their lives in service of their country in the Second World War?
The war memorial at Littlemoor, Newbold bears the names of soldiers from Newbold who died serving their country during the First World War.But there is no public memorial for the servicemen and women from Newbold who died serving their country in the Second World War or in subsequent conflicts.
The local Residents and Tenants Association, along with the Churches Together has a project aimed at ensuring that the names of all of Newbold’s soldiers, sailors, airmen and women who died serving their country since World War I are recorded on a suitable memorial at Littlemoor.
I am helping the project by researching the names of local servicemen and women who lost their lives in World War II.
If any of your readers have information that may assist with this research I shall be grateful if they will get in touch with me by telephone or e-mail.
