War Memorial 100

Field Marshall Viscount Allenby

On Sunday 28th August 1920 Field Marshall Viscount Allenby unveiled the Chitterne War Memorial to the fallen, and servicemen who had served, in the First World War. Field Marshall Allenby, who had taken command of the British Forces in Palestine in the war, was seen as a great hero at the time.

Edmund Allenby’s connection to Chitterne was through his sister Faith who lived at Chitterne House with her husband Vice-Admiral Charles Lionel Napier.
