Cobham and Luddesdown villages were the same as many villages up and down the country - their men went to fight in World War 1 and some never came back. Their names are commemorated on the War Memorials of both villages and remembered on Remembrance Sunday every year. In Luddesdowne, two booklets have been compiled - thanks to information from local people - about the men who died, including the Canadian Royal Air Force Personnal Crew of Halifax bomber LV 996 429 ( Bison) squadron whose plane crashed nearby in 1945.
