A brass recording the Names, Rank and Regiment of men in the Parish who had fallen in the war

The Winkfield war memorial might take two parts.

PARISH WAR MEMORIAL

A second public Meeting was held in the Parish Room, on April 7th, at 7 p.m., to hear the report of the Committee, and there was a good attendance.

It was unanimously agreed that a brass be put up in the Church recording the Names, Rank and Regiment of men in the Parish who had fallen in the war, and a design submitted by Messrs. Maile & Son, at an estimated cost of £60, was approved.

Plans and estimates for the improvement of the Parish Room were discussed but it was proposed and carried that these should be abandoned.

Discussion then took place on the following suggestions:-

1. The erection of a Village Memorial Cross.
2. Providing and equipping a Recreation Ground.
3. Endowing or naming a bed at the Ascot Nursing Home.

No decision was come to, but Messrs. Berry, Bailey, W. Church and D Thurmer, were elected additional members of the Committee, and it was decided that the Committee should go into the points raised and submit their conclusions to another Public Meeting, to be called later. The proceedings terminated with a vote of thanks to the Vicar for presiding.
