TEVIOTHEAD War Memorial

Located in the grounds of Teviothead Parish Church, just off the main A7 between Hawick and Langholm.

OS ref NT 403 052

The Duke of Buccleuch unveiled this memorial on the same day as he unveiled the memorial plaque at Newmill Village in August, 1920.
It is in the form of a Mercat cross to the design of J.P.Alison of Hawick. Inscribed on the base are the names of 10 men of the parish who fell in the Great War.

Sergeant (Pilot) THORNBER, FREDERICK AARON
Unit: 91 Sqdn.
Regiment: Royal Air Force
Service No: 902836
Age: 20
Date of Death: 1 July 1941
Commemoration: HAWKINGE CEMETERY
United Kingdom
Plot O. Row 2. Grave 46.
Additional Information: Son of Hugh Richard and Annie Thornber; foster-son of Eliza J. Usher, of Hawick, Roxburghshire.

Historical: Hawkinge, two miles north of Folkestone, was the site of an aerodrome from which air liaison was maintained between the Royal Air Force and the British Expeditionary Force during the fighting in France and the evacuation from Dunkirk in 1940. As long as communications remained open targets were selected in accordance with requests from the BEF and Hawkinge was one of the advanced re-fuelling bases when maximum range was required for operations over France. It was a fighter airfield for squadrons of No. 11 Group, and was so severely damaged by German bombing and machine gun attacks during the Battle of Britain that it had to be abandoned temporarily. Hawkinge Cemetery is near the site of the aerodrome and most of the 95 Second World War casualties buried there were airmen. About a quarter were killed during the Battle of Britain. Most of the war graves are in a special plot east of the chapel, including 59 German graves, which are together in a group at the south-eastern corner.
