About the memorial: Memorial to James Wallace Walker This originally consisted of an altar reredos in St James’s Church, with an inscription to the memory of James Wallace Walker, killed in action at Anzio in 1943, aged 22. The reredos and the parish war memorial panels (originally placed either side of it) were made by James Walker’s father’s firm. They were dedicated on the 2nd November 1952. The reredos was removed and the war memorial panels resited on the north wall of the chancel when the new east window was installed in 1974. The name of James Wallace Walker is included in the new window, which was designed by Alan Younger. (The reference to Anzio was an error; the battle of Anzio began in January 1944.) A picture of St James’s Church in the 1950’s, showed the reredos to the memory of James Wallace Walker, and with the parish Second World War memorial panels still in their original position.
