WW2 Names on Swanley War Memorial
Following the fantastic success of our tribute book on the Fallen of WW1 remembered on Swanley War Memorial we are now looking into the names of the men who died during WW2. If you are related to one of these men we would like to hear from you. Any information, memories, photos etc would be invaluable in our quest to produce a lasting tribute to them. A list of names can be found under War Memorial Research.
Please contact email@example.com
We will be at Swanley Town Council's Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29th June. 11 a.m to 4 p.m. Come along and meet Committee Members and find out more about Swanley History Group. Copies of our book 'Swanley War Memorial The First World War The Stories Behind the Names' will be on sale for £8. Other local publications will also be on sale.
We would be interested in meeting anyone who is related to one of the Fallen of WW2 named on the War Memorial or those buried locally or perhaps were omitted from the plaque. We would also be interested in any information about civilians who died in local bombing raids.
