The new plaque will be the third to have been installed at All Saints; the first was destroyed in a disastrous fire which gutted the church in 1926 and the second was  destroyed when the All Saints was bombed by the Luftwaffe in the Second World War .

Organiser Jane McLaughlin says “At the moment we have managed to track down 10 relatives but are now casting our net wider to try to find more. We would appreciate it if they could contact us as soon as possible so that we can arrange for them if they are able to be at the service.”

Jane says  “As most of the men died young, without families of their own, it has been quite a task to trace their families –  but we do have a reasonable number of relatives attending –  as well as goodwill messages from families as far away as Australia and New Zealand.”

In the dedication cerermony “A” level history students from St Cyres and Stanwell schools will be reading out the names of the men named on the plaque and then will laying a wreath for each one of the 32 men beside the altar.
