Trusting Fully Trusting is a book compiled by Dick Cole and Ann Reynolds, and produced by St. Enoder Parish Council.
Samp Rundle of Indian Queens died from his wounds on the 27th August 1917 and lies buried in the Wieltje Farm Cemetery in Belgium. He was one of the 73 men from Fraddon, Indian Queens, St Columb Road and Summercourt who lost their lives in the First World War and its immediate aftermath, including his younger brother Philip Charles Rundle.
Samp’s grave marker includes the inscription “TRUSTING FULLY TRUSTING” which has been chosen as the title of this publication.
Between 1914 and 1918, millions of men from across the globe left their homes to fight in the First World War. Many did not return to their families and their communities. More than 6,000 men from Cornwall lost their lives and this book has been produced to remember the 73 men from Fraddon, Indian Queens, St. Columb Road and Summercourt who died. Some were from long-established local families, while others had more fleeting connections with the area.
As the First World War becomes more distant, and to mark the centenary of the conflict, St. Enoder Parish Council felt it was important to find out about the fallen servicemen, so they would be more than just names on local war memorials. This book seeks to tell the human story behind each and everyone; who they were, what they did in their short lives, what happened to them, and the consequences of their deaths for their families and friends.
