NEWINGTON & PEENE WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Transcribed David Hughes and Neil Clark 2004

The village of Peene was bulldozed years ago to make way for the Channel Tunnel. This attractive war memorial is located in the centre of the small village of Newington. Newington is a remarkably quiet place when you consider that it is located so close to the Channel Tunnel Terminal.
