A message from Neil @ Greenmount URC
To mark the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe we are planning to produce a booklet about the men remembered on the Greenmount war memorials. There are thirteen men recorded across the three memorials, village, church and cricket club and we hope to find out a little about their lives and where they died.
The thirteen are;
Lieut. Ian R. A. Adamson R. N.
Tpr. Harry Barrow
Tpr. P. Blinkhorn
Sto. Meck. Gordon Butterworth
R. O. J. Fallon
L/Cpl. Neville Pilling
O. S. William Platt
Capt. Kenneth Savin
ERA Joseph Scholes
L/Sjt. Clarence Vernon
Pte. T. Warbuton
Gnr. J. Yates
It is possible that you are related to one of the above or have some knowledge about them which you would be willing to share with us.
Two years ago we wrote a booklet about the first world war soldiers remembered on the church memorial. We hope that if we can gather enough information a similar booklet can be produced.
Greenmount during the war years
We are also interested to hear about Greenmount during the war years or any personal or family recollections about that time. The background information and recollections help in building a picture of that time.
