Gallipoli 100 years on

The community of Eton Wick shared in the toll of the Gallipoli campaign and the War Memorial at St John the Baptist Church records the names. We will be publishing the stories of Arthur Richards, Henry Ashman and Peter Knight on the 100th anniversary of their deaths.

Betty Denham, who was a resident of Eton Wick between 1960 and 1999 had an uncle who saw service during the Gallipoli campaign as a cook. This photograph was taken during the campaign and Jim Batten, her relative is the soldier in the center. He was John Denham's neighbour in the 1920's & 30's.

If you live in Eton Wick or have a connection with the village please let us know about relatives of yours who saw service during the Gallipoli campaign.
