About the memorial: A WAR MEMORIAL CRESCENT of five ancient (150 million years old) Corallian limestones with inset Welsh Slate plaques. STONE ONE - Let these stones forever give us pause to remember dedication to men from the village who have given their lives for our freedoms since 14 October, 1066. STONE TWO - Remembrance and thanks to Local Men killed in WWI and WWII. STONE THREE - Remembrance and thanks to RAF, RCAF and USAAF Allied Air Crew killed in crashes above, on and around the village in WWII. STONE FOUR - Remembrance and thanks to RAF Glider and Airspeed Oxford Training School Crew who operated here in 1942 and 1943 - and to US Army and Air Force Units based in our village and at Airfield Station 403 who deployed from the village to Normandy in 1944. STONE FIVE - Remembrance and thanks to all those who have continued to pay the supreme sacrifice for our freedom in conflicts since WWII. A 6th plaque on the east side of Stone Three tells the story of the stones. This unique Village War Memorial Crescent was researched, designed and managed by Rob Belk, funded by public appeal and put into place in October/November, 2012.
