About the memorial: The Yorkshire Post, Monday, September 26, 1904 MEMORIAL TO GOOLE VOLUNTEERS At the Goole Drill Hall on Saturday afternoon the Hon. Mrs A. F. Hood, Airmyn Hall, unveiled a memorial in honour of the members of the Goole detachment of the 1st V.B. K.O.Y.L.I., who served in South Africa. The memorial takes the form of a mural tablet in brass, upon which are inscribed the names of all the local men who went to the front. The expenses have been borne by Mrs. Hood (three of whose soldier sons served in South Africa, where one of them died), and by members of the company. There was a large gathering at the ceremony, and Mrs. Hood, in unveiling the tablet, referred with pride to the fact that Goole sent so many Volunteers to the front. The number was larger in proportion to the size of the town than for any other town in the country. She also spoke of the gallantry of the Goole officer (Lieut. Hind) who accompanied them, and in conclusion she said that the memorial would show to future generations what Goole Volunteers could do, and would be an inspiring example if at any other time they should have to respond to their country’s call. (Applause)
