About the memorial: WAR MEMORIALS - On Sunday afternoon Major Molson, M.P., unveiled a memorial erected by the Etherington Street Constitutional Club, Gainsborough, to the members who fell in the war, and also to the sons of members. Major Marshall, High Sheriff of Lincolnshire, performed a similar ceremony at the Melrose Road Constitutional Club. Lincolnshire Echo, 31 January 1921, pg 4 Following the unveiling of the War Memorial in the Heritage Centre on Saturday 3rd November: Later on in the day another World War One Memorial was unveiled at the Melrose Social Club. The memorial was originally unveiled in 1921 by Major Marshall and has now returned to the building it was originally made for. The memorial contains the names of 30 members and sons of members of the Gainsborough Constitutional Club who died in the war. The Melrose Social Club was bought by its members some years ago and it was agreed that the plaque can be re-erected to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. The memorial was saved and has been part of the collection of the Gainsborough and District Heritage Association for many years. Andrew said: “The plaques have been at the Centre almost as long as we have been running. They were discovered in the cellar of the main club on Heaton Street and they have since been displayed on many an occasion throughout various exhibitions. It seems only fitting in this anniversary year that the plaque be re-erected in one of the clubs that the men and their families attended, so they may continue to be remembered.” Gainsborough Standard Monday 05 November 2018
