Royal British Legion: Walkern’s Warriors
Compiled by Robert Huntley & Peter Knight for the June / July 2005 issue of the Walkern Journal
On the 10th July the Royal British Legion will celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War with church services around the country. In Hertfordshire a special service will be held at St Alban?s Abbey where members of the Legion?s local branch will be present. Although a number of Walkern villagers gave their lives during the conflict and others have died since, there are still some local residents who played an active roll in the war. This is their story.
