About the memorial: Village hall constructed as a memorial to Major Leighton. This report is derived from a report in the Hampshire War Memorials website dated 1986. The website for the Hall describes it as "modern" and "state of the art". I was unable to ascertain online whether this means that the Hall has been reconstructed so that the original no longer exists, or that it has been modernised. Nor whether the plaque regarding its construction as a memorial is still there - Major Leighton's name does not seem to appear on the hall website. Local knowledge is called for. and enquiries have been made. The hall does not appear in the IWM Register, though other memorials in the village do.
