New Names for the Wheathampstead War Memorial

I have just received the following message:
Good news about the Folly memorial windows! Through the work of Terence Pankhurst and his wife in Wheathampstead, they have identified 4 names which are currently missing from the main war memorial in the village These names will be inscribed on a plaque, to be added to the current war memorial  The names listed on the Folly Methodist Chapel Memorial Windows, which are missing at the moment from the main one, are as follows:
Sidney Bandy,
Francis George Gray,
Murray Walter Harrison.
Cyril John Pearce is to be added to the war memorial although he was technically not a soldier at that time.

  1. Cyril John Pearce is commemorated on the War Memorial. He is not on the Commonwealth War Graves Index as he died after being discharged,
