On the 31st July 1917 the Battle Of Passchendaele began and this bloody battle continued until 10th of November which resulted in 300,000 British casualties alone. It is calculated that one British or Commonwealth soldier died for every two inches gained.     


East Preston lost two of their own;

Private Gordon William Cheal, Machine Gun Corps who was killed 16th August who is burried in Potijze Chateau Cemetery and Lance Corporal George Edmund Glinister, Royal Sussex Regiment who died in action 24th September and has no known grave and he is remembered on the walls of Tyn Cot Cemetery, the largest Commonwealth Cemetery in the world.

These men will always be remembered, but they would not want it to be all gloom and doom so the afternoon of Saturday 29th July saw the commemoration by celebration for them and all of East Preston's "Fallen" hero's. It was also an opportunity to celebrate the Club's 70th Anniversary which was founded in 1947.

An afternoon of Jazz and the ever popular meat raffle was well supported including by those not members who were welcomed to see what the club has to offer to people of all ages.



The club is also home of our British legion Branch who are the first port of call for our local veterans and their dependents who may need assistance from the Royal British Legion whose sole purpose since 1921 is to support our veterans and dependents.


It's what we're here for so if you know of an old soldier in need please do not hesitate to contact us.

This is a good opportunity to see the band in West Sussex and they will be back in 2017.
