In this section I have recorded the names of all those Wing men serving in the armed forces of any kind that I have located in any records (it does not yet represent a complete listing).

If you are having trouble sourcing the records mentioned please contact me as in many cases I have copies of the records offline.
Do you have a Wing military man not listed here, or any more information on these men? Please email me and I will add the details. Any stories or photos you can share about life in Wing during wartime would also be gratefully appreciated – you can read about the home front in WWI and the local war efforts here. Does anyone have any memories of the bomb that dropped in Wing Park in WWII?
