DISCREPANCIES BETWEEN THE WAR MEMORIALS
INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE CHURCH,

Where "Battalion differs", that is between the memorial inside and the RoH website, as of course the outside memorial doesn't show men's units.

 

In the whole of Suffolk, there are only two so-called "Thankful Villages", communities where every soldier returned from the Great War —
Culpho (a hamlet now of less than 100 people near Grundisburgh) and
the even smaller South Elmham St Michael (between Halesworth and Bungay).

Within East Anglia there are just two others, both near Cambridge.  There is only one in the whole of France.
