Court Lodge Road

Lushington Cottage opposite Court Lodge was where Ben Carbis was billeted with the Johnson family. Their son Richard( b 1891) served with the 4th Royal West Kents’ from the beginning of the War and survived. Next door a family of 11 Belgian refugees were living – they had lost everything when they fled from Ostend. Court Lodge was the home of Mr E Terry who lent his meadow to hold the village Peace Celebrations in July 1919.
