WW1 Roll of Honour.

In memory of all the brave lads that lost there lives in the Great War, a “War” to end all Wars! Least we forget.

when you see millions of the mouthless dead across your dreams in pale battalions go

say not soft things as other men have said that youll rememeber for you need not so give them not praise for deaf how should they know This memorial commemorates the residents of Slindon who were killed or missing in World War I (15 names) and World War II (3 names).

Slindon like so many villages, lost many of its lads , many have no resting place, but they will never be forgotten.
