Skillington Life


I have recently received a wonderful account of some of those Skillingtonians who fell in the Great War of 1914-1918. Ron Cosford who now lives in Oxfordshire is the Grandson of Robert Henry Robertson of Skillington. Ron has researched his grandfather’s activities in the Great War along with those of the Meads, and the Duffins.

At this time when we are thinking of the braveness of the men who lost their lives a hundred years ago, I urge you to read this short account.
