HELP US TO PAY TRIBUTE TO 13 SONS OF Cornhill VILLAGE WHO DIED DURING
THE FIRST WORLD WAR
This year marks the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. We have not yet been able to prove that any son of the village died in the battle, although one, JR Reid was wounded on 5 July 1916 while serving with the Northumberland Fusiliers.Subsequently he was declared missing in action on 3 May 1917.
Early research suggests that two more of the thirteen people named on the War Memorial died on the same day (3 May 1917), although they were serving in the King’s Own Scottish Borderers
John Dalgleish has been positively identified as being Killed in Action in Gallipoli on 12 July 1915, aged 24, when serving with the King’s Own Scottish Borderers
We plan to mount an exhibition in the Church in the weeks prior to
Remembrance Sunday on 13 November
Have you got some time to help with the research?

A bench has been added to the play area in Wark
for the benefit of residents and visitors alike.
The bench, (pictured below), was kindly donated jointly by the Parish Council and members of the local community and a commemorative plaque has been added in recognition of the years of sterling work and commitment to the parish by Councillors W. Potts, R. Brydon and B. A. Woodcock.
