Rung half-muffled in memory of Corporal (Acting Sergeant) William Thomas Whitehead 1st/1st Royal Buckinghamshire Hussars, died in Cairo on 23rd November 1917. William was a ringer at this tower. It was only discovered recently that he was a ringer which is why he was not remembered on the centenary of his death, but on the 101st anniversary. Also remembering Corporal Joseph Charles Whitehead, Oxford & Bucks Light Infantry, died 11th July 1916 who was also a ringer, Private Willian Frank Bull, died 9th March 1917, Private Christopher Boughton Shouler, died 9th April 1917, Lance Corporal John B Merry, died 16th August 1917, and Private Herbert Reginald Ambler, died 16th October 1917.
