About the memorial: On Sunday Brigadier-General R.L. Adlercron, C.M.G.,D.S.O., unveiled a four light East window at Wilsford Church, erected to the memory of the fallen in the parish. The number who left Wilsford constitutes almost a record for the size of the village. The window commemorates the memory of no less than 22 men. The window represents the figures of St. Raphael, St. Martin, St. George and St. Michael, with small subjects below of the Nativity, Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension, the figures and subjects being enclosed within a richly designed canopy and base. The tracery is filled with the badges of the various regiments which are represented in the names of the fallen, and which are painted on the scrolls at the base of the window. The window, which is beautifully proportioned, lent itself to successful treatment along the lines suggested by the architect, Mr. Wilfred Bond of Grantham, under whose supervision the work has been carried out by Messrs Geo. F. Gascoyne (Nottingham). Sleaford Journal Saturday July 3rd 1920
