World War 2 Eighty Years On - January 1942 - Archibald Chew

The village Billeting Officer, Archibald Chew, reluctantly had to resign the post due to ill health. He had excelled at this time-consuming job and always went to great lengths to make sure that evacuees were happy in their new homes and the successful village salvage drives were all due to his efforts.

Mr. Chew died in 1943 after a prolonged illness.
