Four soldiers, including three brothers, spent part of their early lives in Thistleton but the villlage does not have a war memorial and none of them are remembered here. Rupert Archer Thomson is remembered only on the Vimy Memorial. Edgar Walker, who was born in the villlage, is buried at Boulogne Eastern Cemetery. His elder brother William Walker is remembered on the Loos Memorial. But there is some doubt about what happened to their younger brother Herbert Walker. All three, however, are remembered at Duddington where the family was living when war broke out.
