NEWMARKET WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards, Dave Edwards, David Males & Anthony Pringle

The Newmarket memorial can be found in the Memorial Gardens at the junction of Bury Road and Fordham Road, Newmarket. It takes the form of a granite pillar mounted on a stepped base topped by an urn; on th east and west faces can be found a sword and wreath. The memorial was unveiled by Major-General Sir William Lambton and dedicated by the Bishop of St Edmundsbury & Ipswich on 16th October 1921. The monies were raised by public subscription and the memorial cost £2,000 to erect. There are 214 names listed for World War 1, 82 for World War 2 and 10 World War 2 Civilians. The names in each section have been sorted into alphabetical order for ease of research and reading. While researching it has become evident thatn there are a lot of men who fell who were either born or resident in Newmarket who are not included on the memorial; the criteria that the Memorial Committee used for the selection process is not known but may answer this question. For more information see the Newmarket Local History Society website.

Extract from The Distinguished Service Order - Volume II - 1886-1915:

BEATTY, CHARLES HAROLD LONGFIELD, Capt, was born 16 Jan. 1870, eldest son of Capt. David Beatty, formerly in the 4th Hussars, of Borodale, County Wexford, who for many years lived at The Moat, Rugby. Capt. Beatty's other sons are Admiral Sir David Beatty, G.C.B, K.C.V.O, D.S.O, C.C. The Grand Fleet ; Capt. Vandeleur Beatty, who now trains at Newmarket, and Capt. George Beatty, 1st Lancers, Indian Army (died in India in 1915). Charles Beatty was educated at Cheltenham, and at Trinity College, Stratford-on-Avon, and joined the 6th Battn. of the Warwickshire Regiment. In 1892 he won his first steeplechase on a horse named Radical, owned by Mr. Ralli, in the Dunmore Plate at Rugby. He won the Hunt Cup at Warwick. In one afternoon at Towcester, in 1894, he won four races, and was only beaten by a neck in a fifth. In 1895 Mr. Beatty steered Kestrel to 'victory in the Grand Inter- national Steeplechase at Sandown Park. In the same year he won several races with the Nun, though he did not always ride the mare himself. In 1897 Mr. Beatty was second in the Grand National on Filbert, and in the following year he again had the mount of Filbert, and finished fourth. In 1898 Capt. Beatty gave up riding races, and went to Newmarket, where he superintended the training of horses owned by the late Colonel McCalmont. Shortly afterwards he left with his Regiment for South Africa, and served in the Boer War of 1899-1902. He remained in South Africa for two years, serving in the Mounted Infantry and on the Staff of General Alderson; operations in the Transvaal in May and June, 1900; operations in Natal, March and April, 1900 ; operations in the Transvaal, west of Pretoria, July to 29 Nov. 1900, including actions at Frederickstad (17 to 25 Oct.); operations in Cape Colony, north of Orange River, including action at Ruidam. He served with mounted Infantry ; operations in the Transvaal 30 Nov. to Dec. 1901 ; operations in the Orange River Colony, Jan. to March, 1902 ; operations in the Transvaal, March to 31 May, 1902 (Queen's Medal with three clasps ; King's Medal with two clasps). For his services in this campaign Capt. Beatty was also twice mentioned in Despatches, and was created a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order [London Gazette, 27 Sept. 1901] : "Charles Harold Longfield Beatty, Capt, 6th Royal Warwickshire Regiment. In recognition of services during the operations in South Africa." He was invested by the King 29 Oct. 1901. In 1901 Capt. Beatty returned to Newmarket, and in 1903, after the death of Colonel McCalmont, he took over the lease of the Stables and began to train on his own account. Shortly afterwards he took over the horses of Lord Howard de Walden. St. Maclou, who won the Lincolnshire Handicap in 1902, and beat Sceptre by a head, was trained by Capt. Beatty. In the same year St. Maclou won a Biennial at, Newmarket. ; was beaten by a neck by Ballantrae, in the Cambridgeshire, to whom he was giving 31 lbs, and won the Manchester November Handicap. A year later he won the October Plate at Kempton Park, and the Select Stakes at Newmarket. In this same year, Zinfandel, also trained by Major Beatty, won five out of the six races in which he took part. His single glorious defeat was in the Cesarewitch, carrying 8 stones 4 lbs, and giving Grey Tick, the winner, three years and 23 lbs. The five races in which he came in first were the Manchester Cup, the Gold Vase at Ascot, the Gordon Stakes at Goodwood, the Brighton Cup and the Scarborough Stakes at Newmarket. In the following year Zinfandel again won five out of the six races in which he ran, in the last of which he took his revenge on Throw- away. As a five-year old Zinfandel ran twice; was beaten by Pretty Polly in the Coronation Cup, and won the Ascot Gold Cup. Capt. Beatty won he Jockey Club Stakes with Rising Glass. Major Beatty served in the European War from 1914-15, as A.D.C. to General Sir Edwin Alderson, while commanding the Canadian Expeditionary Force ; was mentioned in Despatches [London Gazette, June, 1915] ; while serving with Mounted Infantry was severely wounded at St. Eloi, April, 1916 (left, arm amputated), and died of wounds 17 May, 1917. Major Beatty was buried at Atherstone with full military honours. The band of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment, to which Major Beatty was attached, attended. Among the mourners were the widow and Major Vandeleur Beatty. Admiral Sir David Beatty was unable to be present. A memorial service was held at St. Agnes's Church, Newmarket, at the same time as the funeral at Atherstone. The Rev. — Colvil-Wallis, Rural Dean, officiated, and a number of racing folk were present. Capt. Beatty married, in 1905, Lucy Alice, eldest daughter of the late Edward Beck, Esq, of Gippsland, Victoria, widow of J. S. Langlands, Major, 43rd Oxfordshire Light Infantry, and there is one son, Charles Robert Longfield, born 24 Oct. 1910.

Note: The eight month campaign in Gallipoli was fought by Commonwealth and French forces in an attempt to force Turkey out of the war, to relieve the deadlock of the Western Front in France and Belgium, and to open a supply route to Russia through the Dardanelles and the Black Sea. The Allies landed on the peninsula on 25-26 April 1915; the 29th Division at Cape Helles in the south and the Australian and New Zealand Corps north of Gaba Tepe on the west coast, an area soon known as Anzac. On 6 August, further landings were made at Suvla, just north of Anzac, and the climax of the campaign came in early August when simultaneous assaults were launched on all three fronts. Early in August 1915, the Embarkation Pier area was occupied by the headquarters of two divisions, and later by a casualty clearing station. The pier was made for the purpose of evacuating wounded from the Battle of Sari Bair, but it came under heavy rifle and shell fire and was abandoned after just two days. Apart from five original burials, the cemetery is made up of burials brought in after the Armistice from the cemeteries known as Chailak Dere Nos 1 and 2, Mulberry Tree, and Apex, and from isolated graves. There are now 944 Commonwealth servicemen buried or commemorated in the cemetery. There are special memorials to 262 casualties known or believed to be buried among them but 662 of the burials are unidentified. [Extract from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission]

Civilians killed by enemy action

Note: It was on 18th February 1941 that a lone German Dornier 17Z bomber swept low over the High Street, dropping bombs and pouring machine gun fire onto the market day shoppers. Thirteen died and more than 100 were injured and the High Street was structurally devastated, including the White Hart Hotel. The bomber which made the attack may not have made it back to its base in occupied Europe. The crew of a Wellington bomber from No 99 Squadron taking off from the airfield on Newmarket Heath at the time of the bombing and heading in a south-easterly direction saw the clouds of smoke ahead and sighted the Dornier which they managed to fly alongside. The pilot ordered the front and rear turret gunners to open fire and they got in some good bursts before the Dornier disappeared into cloud. When the Wellington returned to base the pilot was later informed by his Flight Commander (Sq/Leader J.B. Black) that an army Ack ack unit had reported a Dornier downed near Thetford. He said that the Wellington crew should be credited with half the 'kill'.
