Chiseldon Remembers WW1

Did your father, grandfather or great grandfather serve at Chiseldon Camp?  Is his name on one of the village’s War Memorials?

The Army camp opened in August 1914 and many thousands of men and women were trained, hospitalised or demobilised there.  As well as the home nations, ANZACs, South Africans and Canadians were all at the camp.

Chiseldon Local History Group would like to collect any stories or pictures relating to the camp or the men listed on the memorials, either for display in our museum or to be retained in our archives.  So look out that old box of photos, letters and postcards – you may find a forgotten gem!  All original material will be returned to you after digitising.
