When Brenda Miller and her brother Colin Cory's cousin, Pat Betts, wrote a 144 page book called "We Will Remember Them", she discovered that eight names were missing from the Harpole war memorial. The Harpole Heritage Society had these names engraved on a brass plaque and a ceremony was held at 11.00am on 30th October 2004 to honour them. The Boys Brigade band played and the Veterans laid poppies. Brenda and Colin's father, Frederick A J Cory, who in WW2 was in the Royal Navy, was chosen to take the salute at the 'March Past'.

O Valiant hearts, who to your glory came,

Through dust of conflict and through battle flame,

Tranquil you lie, your knightly virtue proved,

Your memory hallowed in the land you loved.
