World War One Diary - Day by Day

Long standing residents of the village will no doubt remember the late Rector - Rev L E P De Casabianca (Rector of Woodford and Twywell 1957 -1980), but possibly less well recalled are Mrs De Casabianca's mother and step father who lived their twilight years in the bungalow at the west end of Church Street. Hubert Brown had fought in the First World War from the start of hostilities until 1916 when he was injured at the Somme. His war diaries are now being published on a daily basis, each day being put online exactly 100 years to the day following the recorded events. The diaries are somewhat vague in the early days but once mobilised become more descriptive.

Mr Hubert Brown and his wife Florence, were laid to rest in Woodford Churchyard in 1962.
