MEN OF NEW BUCKENHAM WHO DIED IN THE GREAT WAR Herbert Land and his brother Ernest of New Buckenham joined the army to go to the Great War.  Both were fortunate to survive and their names join the 127 others in the Roll of Honour displayed in various versions in St Martin’s Church.  The brothers’ details were researched by Herbert’s grandson Evan Waite who then researched the war details of the 16 men who had given their lives. Evan’s results in more detail are compiled in his book New Buckenham - the supreme sacrifice  which was placed in St Martin’s on permanent display on 11 November 2018. Note also in St Martin’s a modest plaque in the North aisle showing the names of the 12 men of New Buckenham who gave their lives in WW2.
