Harry Pulman was my uncle, my mother's brother. I always knew he was killed in world war 1 but it was not till I was researching my mother's side of the family that I found he lived and worked in Angmering. He enlisted into the Royal Sussex Regiment in Worthing. Hi name is recorded in St Georges Chapel Chichester Cathedral. It seems right to add his name to our war memorial.

Harry Pulman probably had no relatives living nearby who would have represented his interests. I think Arthur Walsha's widowed mother, who lived at Kinnoull House, moved away by the end of WW1 and, again, he was forgotten.

Both of these two for differing reasons were probably not well known in the village and easily forgotten when the memorial committee drew up the names a couple of years after the war had ended.

As opposed to that, Stanley Messenger (listed on the memorial), whose parents retired to Roundstone House, probably never lived in Angmering himself - just visited occasionally.

Thanks for that Neil. Do you know why they were not listed before?
