KNIGHT, Arthur Orson (1896-1971)

Arthur Knight left Badsey to serve his country in the First World War, and at the age of 19 was severely wounded in the head.  He never recovered, but spent the rest of his life in mental hospitals.  Now the long agony for his family and friends is at an end.  May God grant him light and peace.  Though none of the family now live in Badsey, their records here go back 300 years.

Obituary published in the December 1971 parish magazine.
