Nonington men who served in the Armed Forces during The Great War
A record of Nonington men who served in the Armed Forces during The Great War. Believed to have been published after the war had ended.
Troward Smith who served in 4th Battalion, The Buffs. He lived for many years until his death in the early 1970’s in the first house on the right as you enter Easole St. from Holt St.
A parade by Nonington members of the British legion held on Nonington Cricket ground,circa 1921.Some members are veterans of wars prior to The Great War of 1914-1918. Several Nonington men served in the Boer War of 1899-1901. The parade may have been held just before the veterans marched to the opening of the Knolton War Memorial. The only one I can be certain of identifying is ex-Grenadier Guardsman Harry Whybourne, sixth man in from the right and the tallest man in the line, .
