Chipperfield Men And Women In World War Ii

1st of October 2010

It is now over 70 years since the start of World War Two and this summer has seen a number of commemorations marking the key events from those early years of the war which also serve as a reminder of the contribution that a generation made.
A good start has been made in researching the men and women from Chipperfield who served in World War Two. Many people have kindly provided information about their family members and villagers to be included in the book which my son and I are planning to publish by Remembrance Day next year. With over 200 names to work through, there are several with which we still need further assistance. This month we have some names that will be familiar to many Chipperfield residents but so far we know little of their wartime service and lives. Are you able to help by putting us in contact with their families, or do you have information about them?
Douglas & Donald Grive, sons of the Baptist Minister.
The Tebby brothers, sons of Mrs Tebby, who ran the post office and stores at Bucks Hill.
Ralph Laurence whose parents ran the Supply Stores next to the Royal Oak.
John Barker, son of police constable Barker, of 10 Queen Street.
William Bryant, son of Isaac and Ellen, who came from Bucks Hill and died in 1966.
He did not marry but had several brothers and sisters.
Percy John Dyke who lived in Bucks Hill. His father, also called Percy, lived at The Cottage, Bucks Hill House.
If you are able to assist with information about these people or any others of Chipperfield who served, please do get in touch.
Mary Nobbs, Dellfield, The Street, Chipperfield WD4 9BJ.
