On the 8th May 1945 VE Day marked the end of hostilities and heralded the end of WW2 in Europe.
Now 70 years on it is only fitting that we should remember all those that gave their lives across the World in order for Europe to return to a free and peaceful society after more than 5 years of conflict. Here in Ruddington to mark this event a short service of Reflection will be held on Sunday 10th May at 7pm at St Peters Church to which everyone is invited.
In Ruddington we remember 27 servicemen and 1 woman on our War Memorial. We have some details about all except 7 of them. We are appealing for help to fill in details about the missing casualties. Listed below are the names that we are asking for details of: Norman Clarke, Kenneth S Cowley, Philip Chapman, Albert Stanley Grove, George E Parker, Sydney Thompson, Richard M Tilley
If you have any information about them please contact Marilyn Parker email firstname.lastname@example.org or George Fearn Tel: 0115 9213556 on behalf of Ruddington & District Branch RBL
