About the memorial: A memorial tablet erected in the entrance hall of the Lincoln Constitutional Club, the fallen members of the Junior Imperial League (Lincoln Branch), was unveiled on Sunday afternoon by Mr. R.W. Day. The tablet is of white Sicilian marble and was designed and executed by Mr. A.J. Tuttell. At the top is the badge of the League, delicately carved in relief and supported on either side with engravings of the rose, thistle and shamrock. Beneath in incised red lettering, is the inscription: - Erected by their fellow members. Supporting the tablet is a base of English alabaster on which stand moulded and fluted pilaster, of the same material, bearing representations of the Rose and the Arms of the City. Above the tablet is the head of a cherub with outstretched wings. Lieut. Sidney Brown (late of the 18th Manchesters) who presided over the gathering said that ninety percent of the League went into the Army, -a record of which the League was justly proud. The Cons Club closed many years ago and remained empty for a number of years, enquires made as to the whereabouts of the Tablet (cja 17-07-2019) Sleaford Journal, 30th August 1924.
