Roll of Honour

De-Laune

There are five names from the 1914/18 war on the Newnham memorial plaque; Frank Reed, John Tibbels, Arthur Williams, Will England and Walter Webster.

Will England was shaving at the door of his dug-out when he was fatally wounded by a shell a few days before Arthur Williams was killed. Lieutenant Walter Webster lost his life within a few days of being awarded the D.S.O. for picking up a German mortar shell which had landed among his men and throwing it to safety. He was last seen running towards some Germans who had got into his trench - firing his revolver as he went.
