Wartime Wokingham

Sacrifice and Resilience

During both World Wars Wokingham did it’s duty.  From Hospitals and Remount Depots in the First World War to storage areas for tanks and ammunition and camps for troops of different nationalities during the Second World War it was an important place for many.  But most poignant is the men and women of this town who fell. We remember them, their stories and the part Wokingham played in the wars.

We Will Remember

We’re very proud of the men and women of this town who fought and fell in battle. We’ve joined forces with Wokingham Remembers to bring you the stories of our valiant heroes and heroines. Take a look at the part Wokingham played in both the First and Second World Wars on our WARTIME WOKINGHAM PAGES.
