Slaugham warriors welcomed home

Some thirty young men and women from Slaugham served during the Second World War, but four did not return home. They were Captain Christopher Benn, Captain Kennedy Jacomb-Hood, Flight-Sergeant James Kensett, and Able Seaman Norman Nash.
A few months after the end of the war a “Welcome Home” celebration took place in the Chequers with about 60 people attending.
A full report of the evening was published in the Mid Sussex Times; click on Open
