INTRODUCTION

The society has researched all the men from Spratton who served in the Great War and where they lived in the village.  You can read their biographies and see where they lived on a Map of how the village looked at the time.  There is a page where you can read about the research in more detail, including their occupations, when they joined up, which service they were in, which regiments they joined, when they joined, prisoners of war, men who were injured, and those men who died.  There is also information about the campaign medals and medals for distinguished service that the men received.  Lastly there is detailed information about the sources we used.  We have tried to be as accurate as possible, but we are always interested in receiving corrections and further information about the men.  If you have anything to contribute do please contact us at information@sprattonhistory.org.

The first airman to be awarded the Victoria Cross, William Rhodes-Moorhouse, lived in Spratton.  On the centenary of his death we held a Spratton Remembers the Great War event, including displays by the army and local historical societies, and a fly-past by a replica World War 1 plane.  We also held a Rhodes-Moorhouse VC Commemoration to dedicate a memorial stone in his honour.
