Remembering WW1 soldier

I was very interested to read the item on Charles William Peirce in your '˜remembering Worthing's First World War fallen' feature in the July 20 edition.

I did not know of the memorial to Charles Peirce in St Matthews Church.

He is also named on a plaque in West Chiltington church, the closest to Broadford Bridge where he came from.

Charles Peirce was my great uncle, and members of his family still live in this area.
