About the memorial: A very impressive ceremony took place at the General Post Office on Sunday afternoon, when Major Bell unveiled the Gainsborough and District Post Office memorial to the local members of the Staff who had died and who had served during the war. The memorial is in the form of a beautiful illuminated Roll of Honour, framed in heavy oak. The roll has been artistically designed on velum by Mr. F. Johnson, of Gainsborough, and bears the Royal Coat of Arms.
