Commemorating and remembering the lives of the men and women of Chailey, Sussex during the Great War 1914-1918 and remembering too the sick and wounded soldiers nursed by Sussex 54 VAD. This is their story.
i was really amazed to read about my grandfather on the chailey site.he was john thomson allan.he lied about his age to get into the army after his father,a miner got him a job in the mine. this lasted for three weeks as he hated it.my aunt,johns daughter,told me he has a s.africa medal,was in the highland light,gordon highlanders,she also mentioned the boar war and gave me photos of him in his kilt,and with bagpipes i hope this helps,regards,frieda gardhouse
