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.
The photo above shows pupils from Group 5, Chailey National School in 1899. Details are shown below.
The photo was sent to me by the grandson of Frederick Bray.
Frederick is the fair-haired boy sitting on the extreme right and he would later
be wounded on the opening day of the Battle of The Somme, spend time in a German
Prisoner of War camp and ultimately escape back to British lines in Belgium.
with information about any of the pupils pictured here or additional information
about the school, is urged to contact me.
