About the memorial: On Sunday last a memorable service was held in St. Margaret’s Church. Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Morton had given a beautiful carved oak figure of St. George the Patron Saint of England, in memory of their nephew, Langton Benson-Brown, who was killed in action at Moquet Farm, France, on September 6th 1916. Some time ago a handsome mural tablet was also erected in the Church in his memory by his father and mother. The figure was unveiled by Beavis Benson-Brown and dedicated by Rev. W. H. Benson-Brown, vicar of Woodhall Spa and Rural Dean. Mr Everard Howard, organist of St. Peter’s Church, Woodhall Spa, presided at the organ, and the service was taken by the Rector, Rev. C. H. Gibbons. Rev. W. H. Benson-Brown preached on “He asked life, of Thee and Thou gavest him a long life, even for ever and ever.” There was a crowded congregation, and service was most impressive.
