Chailey 1914-1918 - an introduction

Chailey is a village in East Sussex, England. It is also a parish that embraces surrounding hamlets and villages in this beautiful part of southern Britain.
The website tells the story of the Chailey Parish's response during the First World War. It focuses on the men who joined up, the local women who donned nurses' uniforms to care for the sick and wounded and finally, it focuses on soldier patients who left their names in two of the nurses' albums.
I encourage you to contribute to this blog by asking questions and volunteering information. I have many years of research under my belt and if I can help anyone who is conducting a similar WW1 remembrance exercise, I will gladly do so.
