Members of the local community gathered at Winchelsea War Memorial twice in October 2017 to honour three Winchelsea men who were killed in the Battle of Passchendaele 100 years ago. The ceremony, organised by the Bonfire Boyes, forms part of the town’s commemoration of the centenary of the Great War. Two of the men, Noel and Henry Patch, were brothers, killed within a week of each other. The third, Norman Streeton was represented by family members, Eric and Adam Streeton, who both laid wreaths.
