There are two names on the War Memorial that I would like to know more about, can anyone help.......?Extracted from Flight magazine:-
Captain CHARLES D'ARCY EDMUND WENTWORTH REEVE,
Suffolk Regiment and Royal Flying Corps (killed on July 18th
whilst flying), was younger son of Mr. C. S. Wentworth
Reeve, Thorpe Satchville, Melton Mowbray, and Livermere
Park, Bury St. Edmunds. He was 21 years of age, and after
entering the Suffolk Regiment he specialised in aviation and
obtained rapid promotion. He held the rank of Temporary
Captain whilst Fight-Commander in the R.F.C.
.......and Corporal Harry Hilder Military Medal, how did he receive this medal?
Great Livermere Hall [a former rectory] where the original Hall must have been a grand affair, see this oil painting
Looking at my notes I first visited St Peter's Church on 11th September 1999, I have since been back on several occasions, a few church notes
Great and Little Livermere from Google Earth
Harry Hilder MM was my Great Grandfather's cousin. Unfortunately I don't have any further information on why he was awarded the MM however I can confirm that he was in the 8th Battalion East Surrey Regiment and died at Arras on 3rd May 1917. There is a memorial to him also in the Churchyard, behind the church by the back wall, next to his sister [Constance Gobbitt] and parents Baptist and Alice Hilder. I would be very interested if anyone locally has further information.
