About the memorial: TO THE EDITOR OF THE “FREE PRESS” Sir. The Committee of the above fund are anxious before erecting their memorial to make sure that, so far as can be ascertained, no names are omitted from the Roll of Honour. May we therefore make an urgent appeal through your paper for information concerning old Moultonians about whose service in the great war no information as yet been received by the secretaries : (see list below). We hope that the completed memorial will consist of (I) A Commemorative Tablet containing the names of the fallen and of all who served. (II) Oak trees planted in the School field, one in memory of each old boy know to have fallen, and (III) A book commemorating the part played by Moultonians in the war. Work on the first two parts of the memorial is already in hand. We are also most anxious to be able to publish the book, but do not feel justified in proceeding with this until further financial help is assured. A final appeal for support and information is being issued; if any who are interested in the success of the memorial are overlooked in the despatch of these, we shall be very glad to hear from any of them. Thanking you for your kindly help Yours &c. F. Y. POYNTON J. G. WESTMORELAND Hon. Secretaries, Holbeach. The tablet, which is a handsome one of bronze, in an oak frame, has attracted enormous attention during the week-end, and is a virtual work of art. At the top is a beautiful engraved School crest in bronze, The Grammar School was closed in 1939 and the pupils were transferred to Spalding Grammar, the building was converted to private housing, the memorial been re-located on the north wall of the nave of Moulton All Saints.
