Per Ardua ad Astra

Service Number 1615659
Died 26/11/1944 Aged 22
305 (Polish) Sqdn Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve
Son of George Oliver Nugent and Gladys Julia Nugent, of Aldbourne, Wiltshire. Nephew of Miss Muriel Constance Foster of Ivy Cottage, Aldbourne.

The seat with the memorial plaque is still a gathering place as it has been for decades. One of my favourite photos is this one sent to the Aldbourne Archive by Peter Clark. Peter is the son of Eric Clark, senior partner with the Ramsbury Solicitors, Phelps and Lawrence, who lived at Barn House in Castle Street from c 1960. It’s a wonderful photo. I’ve published it on Facebook several times, and the latest list of names is:

From the left: Lennie Liddiard (the Butts); Freddy Davies (South St); Fred Barnes (Back Lane); ? ; Jack Humphries (Lottage Rd); Fred Smith (Lottage Rd); Tommy Cowles (Lottage Rd); Harry Wootton (Baydon Hill) but if anyone else has any ideas, please drop me a line!
