SOLDIERS WW2 on the Isle of Wight
this page is in the course of construction - more names to come ....

In 1940, a committee from the amalgamated Congregational and Baptist Churches of Castlehold Carisbrooke, decided to hold Soldiers Entertainment Evenings, where they could relax in a pleasant atmosphere, to chat, play the piano and generally socialise.  There were Whist Drives, Table Games, Talent Contests and Concerts.  The first day of opening was Easter Tuesday 1940.  The surnames below, are from the visitors book, there are other details such as: Rank, Regiment, Service number, Home address.  For some there were fewer details than others.
There were a few Canadian soldiers amongst them, I have put those in green.
