Present condition



1. The Fishing Boat Inn was bought c1998 and closed as an inn with the proposal to make it into dwellings. This met with strong disapproval of the villagers, who wanted to retain the inn. The photographs were removed and placed in the Memorial Hall until the matter should be settled. It was finally decided that the inn should remain. The photographs have been returned to the inn.

2. The ranks and regiments of some can be deduced from the photographs.
