Hopton Wood stone, 18 feet, surmounted by a cross, unveiled by Colonel William Capper, C.V.O.

"Almost immediately after the outbreak of the 1st World War, in October 1914 the young men of Rayne responded to the recruitment effort and enlisted. They assembled on Rayne Hall Green and it was on this spot that, in October 1920, the present Memorial Cross was unveiled, in the presence, amongst others, of the survivors. Of the 30 who originally enlisted, only 10 returned,
and of these, only two were uninjured."
an extract from "Rayne, From early times to the present day"

*Major General Sir Thompson Capper CB, DSO, KCMG spent much of his boyhood in Rayne with his uncle, the Rector of Rayne, Rev W S Hemming. He was one of the fifteen most senior officers to be killed during the War. This Memorial was unveiled by his brother Colonel William Capper.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them."
Laurence Binyon, For the Fallen
