This book has been written, in conjunction with the Milford Branch of The Royal British Legion, to recall the role Milford played in the Second World War and remember those who died. It is therefore a companion volume to Milford on Sea and the Great War , published in 2006.
The research costs have been funded by the authors and the research team, whilst the printing costs have been organised by the Milford Three. All profits from sales therefore go directly to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, for the welfare of ex servicemen and servicewomen. However, the prime reason for writing this and similar books, is to help fulfil the Legion’s remit to ensure that people who gave their lives to enable us to live in a democracy, as we do now, are not forgotten.
Remembrance is not just each November. By recording how individuals were part of the village community, what conditions they served in and how, why and where they died, ensures that their individual histories are not lost. After two generations memories fade and “I think your great uncle Jack was in the Second War” is, sadly, often his sole epitaph in a family. The provision of individual memorials may help both families and the general public to become aware and understand why people from their own village did what they did in the Second World War.
We hope that this book will refresh memories of those watershed years and most particularly of those people from all walks of life, whose names you read in your church, or hear read out on Armistice Sunday.
If you read about them – they are not forgotten.
