News clipping from Aldershot, England Paper
August 27, 1915

"Aldershot should be intensely proud of the patriotic example set by a family in the town, all six sons of Mr. & Mrs. Dudding of 53, Victoria Rd Aldershot, doing "their bit" for King and Country, at the present time, their record being most creditable as the following facts will show.

Mr Dudding has for over twenty years been serving in the Royal Engineers Department in the Aldershot Command and is as hale and hearty as ever. Both he and Mrs Dudding are naturally proud of their six stalwart sons, who are on service, four of whom are at the front, while another has returned wounded after carrying out excellent work. The six sons have between them nearly 70 years service.

The eldest son is Lieutenant Frederick Dudding, Army Services Corps, who has completed 22 years service in the corps, and is still doing a soldiers duty somewhere in France. He has had considerable experience in the army, having been through the South African War, winning the Queen’s and King’s medals, besides the medal for long service and good conduct.

Leonard Dudding is also in the Army Service Corps at the front, and has completed 12 years service.

staff-Sergeant-Major Bertram Dudding, Army Service Corps, also on active service has some nine years service to his credit. He is in the Mechanical Transport Branch and saw active service in South Africa.

stewart Dudding is in the Supply Branch of the Army Service Corps, serving as a baker in the field and has eight years service to his credit.

Corporal Mayne Dudding has four years service in the Army and is in the Royal Flying Corps. He was seriously wounded on March 18th and is now in England, recovering from his injuries.

Arthur Dudding is in the sister service, having been employed under the Admiralty for fifteen years. He is now at Chatham Dockyard.

Altogether the record of the family is most interesting and that the gallant band of brothers will come safely through the war and be reunited will be the sincere wish of all Aldershot."

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The Dudding Hill Line (or Dudding Hill Loop) is a railway line in northwest London running from Acton to Cricklewood. It branches from the North London Line between Acton Central and Willesden Junction stations and heads north then east, terminating at a triangular junction with the Midland Main Line between Cricklewood and Hendon. There are intermediate junctions with the West Coast Main Line at Harlesden and the Chiltern Main Line at Neasden.[1]

The line has no passenger service, no stations, no electrification and is lightly used by freight. It is roughly 4 miles long.


The line was opened in 1875 by the Midland Railway to connect its Cricklewood goods yard to other lines. [2] It had stations at Dudding Hill and Harlesden (also called Harrow Road and Stonebridge Park). [3] From 1878 to 1880 [2] it formed the basis of the Super Outer Circle, which ran from St Pancras to Earl's Court via Cricklewood, Acton and the District Line. [4] It was closed to passenger traffic completely in 1902[2].

The line is also known as the Midland & South Western Joint.[4]
