A memorial with a two fold form

Ascot decided to pay tribute to both the dead and survivors.

At a General Meeting held in the New Stand on July 23rd, it was decided that the Memorial should take a two fold form. A Monument to be erected to the memory of the men who laid down their lives in the defence of their Country, and a Club for the use of those who have been spared to return to their homes.

By the kindness of the Trustees of the Race-Course, and the Office of Woods and Forests, a suitable site is available both for the Monument and the Club on the ground adjoining the Windsor-Ascot-Bracknell roads.
