HAYWARDS HEATH WAR MEMORIALS

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Chris Comber 2004
Additional information Mick Tilley

The 166 men named on the Memorial in the Parish Church of St. Wilfrids and the Memorial Stone on Muster Green, have been identified by reference to the Official Casualty Lists published by the War Office in 1921 and re-issued by J.B. Hayward & Son in association with The Imperial War Museum in 1989 together with 4 recently published volumes of 'The Cross Of Sacrifice' which list the Officers who died in The Great War and the Naval ratings and Royal Marines. Each man has been referred to The Commonwealth War Graves Commission in Maidenhead and further details, including grave locations, supplied by them. Finally, reference has been made to the 1914/19 copies of The Mid Sussex Times formerly in the offices of Charles Clarke Ltd in Boltro Road and The Sussex Daily News copies of which are available for 1914/19 on Microfilm in Brighton Reference Library.

There has, to date, been no mention of the Victoria Cross awarded to Sgt. Knight of the Canadians, on either of the Memorials in the Parish Church and Muster Green or in the contemporary copies of the Sussex newspapers. consequently The Canadian High Commission in London was approached and has kindly confirmed that Sgt. Knights name was recorded by them as appearing on Haywards Heath Memorial(s). To date William Carey has not been identified. He is listed on the Memorial as 'East Surreys' with whom he was wounded in 1916, but obviously he had been transferred or discharged later on during the conflict, as his name does not appear in Volume 36 of the Official List (The East Surrey Regiment). Pte Jones of the Canadians has not been identified from Canadian records and could be one of several entries.

We would be pleased to receive any further details concerning the men and would also be happy to correct any errors or inaccuracies which might be spotted by readers.

Extract taken from The London Gazette 12th November 1918 (No 31012) records the following:

“For the most conspicuous bravery, initiative and devotion to duty when after an unsuccessful attack Sgt. Knight led a bombing section forward, under very heavy fire of all descriptions and engaged the enemy at close quarters. Seeing that his party continued to be held up, he dashed forward alone, bayoneting several of the enemy machine-gunners and trench mortar crews and forcing the remainder to retire in confusion. He then brought forward a Lewis Gun and directed his fire on the retreating enemy party which was opposing the advance of his platoon, inflicting many casualties. In the subsequent advance of his platoon in pursuit, Sgt. Knight saw a party of about thirty of the enemy go into a deep tunnel which led off the trench. He again dashed forward alone and having killed one officer and two NCOs, captured twenty other ranks. Subsequently he routed, single-handed, another enemy party which was opposing the advance of his platoon. On each occasion he displayed the greatest valour under fire at very close range and by his example of courage, gallantry and initiative was a wonderful inspiration to all. This very gallant NCO was subsequently fatally wounded.”

Forgotten VC hero to be honoured in home town

A forgotten hero of the First World War is to be remembered.

Sgt Arthur George Knight was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross, the highest award for bravery in the British Commonwealth, but there is no mention of him anywhere in his home town of Haywards Heath.

He was born there in 1886 but later moved to Saskatchewan in Canada where he worked as a carpenter.

The town council has agreed to give him the recognition her deserves by naming a road after him and inscribing his name on the war memorial in Muster Green.

Mr Knight received the VC for leading a bombing section at Viller-les-Cagnicourt in France in September 1918. When the section was held up he went on alone, killing several enemy machine-gunners and taking 20 German prisoners. The enemy was forced to retreat. Mr Knight was fatally wounded during the attack.
