The London Inn was situated on West Road. This pub is now used as a private dwelling. The above photo shows E Company, 16th Regiment, US First Division outside the pub just before D-Day. On the first wave at Omaha Beach, they suffered 70% casualties.

Charlie Wills sang in this pub. His songs were collected in 1946, and are available in notation form on the EFDSS website the full English. He also made two recordings of Traditional Dorset Songs. Please contact me with details of him singing at this pub.
