THE CHIDEOCK WAR MEMORIAL
FREDERICK BERTHOLD BURGE
CHARLES WILLIAM FORSEY
ARTHUR WILLIAM STEVENS
GEOFFREY HAROLD STEVENS
All the above gave their lives in World War Two. They had all lived in Chideock or one of the surrounding villages. Close family and the village as a whole mourned their loss.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.
From Laurence Binyon’s poem For the Fallen, written in September 1914
I have researched the men who gave their lives in the Great War and whose names are inscribed on the Chideock War Memorial. I have dedicated ‘a page’ to each man. I hope the information is correct but should anyone find any mistakes or have additional information please let me know.
