Wilks Boys

Family members on the High Wycombe War memorial The Common


Our pictures show the war memorial today and The Common prior to the memorial's unveiling in 1921. This early photo would have been how all the Wilks boys would have remembered it. The Wilk(e)s family suffered huge losses in WW1. There are five Wilks on the Flackwell Heath War Memorial and three Wilks men from High Wycombe listed on the High Wycombe War Memorial who are cousins and nephews of the Flackwell Heath Men. Arthur Wilks also suffered the loss of his brother-in-law Leonard Savill.
