The Ditchling men who fell in the two World Wars. See below for full details.
Like every other parish in the country, Ditchling saw its young men go to fight in the First and Second World Wars. In 1921, Colonel Frederick Attree unveiled a Memorial to the 20 men who died in the First World War. In 1945, a further 13 names were added in memory of those lost in the Second World War.
This publication tells the stories of these men, many of whom were part of the community working on the farms and in the gardens, in the local shops, the building yards or at the Ditchling Common brickworks, but who were unable to return home to tell their stories themselves.
