Updated WWII history pamphlet now available

World War Two in Beeding and Bramber
Pat Nightingale and Ken Wilson-Wheeler have released an updated version of their pamphlet World War Two in Beeding and Bramber. New to this version is an interesting page devoted to Flying Officer Gerald Gordon Lonsdale whose memorial can be found above the organ in St. Andrew’s. Like the earlier WWI book, the pamphlet covers Beeding, Bramber, Edburton, Fulking and Small Dole. It includes brief biographies of those who died including Flight Sergeant James William Lucas (son of Percy Lucas) and Chief Officer John A. Ridge, both of Fulking.

The updated pamphlet (price £6.00) can ordered direct from Pat at Bowfell, Hyde Street, Upper Beeding, BN44 3TG (01903-812847) or via email.
