SHOTTENDEN WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © David Hughes and Neil Clark 2006

The Shottenden parish war memorial is in the form of an unusual home made plaque constructed from oak and pine. It originally hung in the former Shottenden Methodist Church but in February 2005 was found in the Chilham parish church for safekeeping. Although not an attractive or particularly well made memorial, it is an original parish tribute and warrants proper care and protection. It would be a disgrace if this very unusual tribute were lost or thrown away!
