Thoughts of a war memorial

The people of Wokingham St Sebastian were already beginning to make donations to a fund for a war memorial. However, they had not forgotten the men still serving, as the war’s third Christmas approached.

War Memorials.
Several contributions have come in for a Parish Memorial to those who have given their lives in the War. The exact form which such a memorial will take will, of course, depend on the amount subscribed, and may well be left for consideration till the end of the War: in the meantime donations may be placed in the box in the Church.

It has been suggested that some little offering, conveying our Christmas Greetings, should be sent from the Parish to each of those who are serving in the Navy or Army. 1d. from every Parishioner (or even ½d.) will enable this to be done. Put your 1d. in the box in the Church.
