The Amport Fallen Heroes of WW1, 1914-1918
Are you a Hercule Poirot or a Miss Marple who could undertake some detective work looking for more details of the Amport Fallen Heroes of WW1, 1914-1918 ?

There are 17 names on the WW1 memorial plaque in St Mary’s Church, Amport. We can see their names and rank, but no real detail. The idea is to research a little more (or a lot more) about each of these Fallen Heroes. Diana Coldicott, a long-term Monxton resident, has written and published ‘Remembering the Fallen – War Memorials in Monxton, Hampshire’. Published as a 22-page softback in September 2019. I am not aware of any research done about the Amport Fallen Heroes.

If this interests you, we are looking for a team of researchers to look into the 17 names, their background, their families, if we can find any images or any more details about their time in the Army, or family life before the war. All the Amport Heroes were Army men, none from the Navy, Merchant Navy, or RAF.

Here are the names, and a few brief details. Do any names ring a bell ? Maybe family still live in Amport or nearby ?

Can you help ? Send me an e-Mail to gxmartinbaker@hotmail.com or call me on 07779-236340 or 01264-772255.

Background information on relevant Regiments and Units is also of interest, so if you would prefer to do some more general research this would also be a great help.

The Amport Fallen Heroes project will also look at Amport during WW1.
