About the memorial: On Thursday night, a roll of honour, recording the names of the members of the Grantham Postal Staff serving in his Majesty's Forces was unveiled by the Postmaster, Mr. W. S. Clarke, Occupying a prominent position in the main office, the roll of honour is in the form of a illuminated emblem, the colours being worked in oils on canvas. It is neatly framed and the dimensions of the whole are 39 inches by 28 inches. The centre is occupied by the names of 48 men comprising 10 members of the indoor staff, 25 postmen (Head office), 12 postmen (Sub-offices), and three district sub-postmasters. With the exception of a few men who where on the reserve strength, they have all joined since the outbreak of the war, and, with two exceptions-these being in the Navy-they are serving in the Army. Two men have made the greatest sacrifice of all. Space is left for attrition in due course of other enlisted postal employees. Surmounting the list of names appears a representation of the flags of the Allies, together with the words "Grantham Post-office," and these are flanked on either side by a uniformed soldier and sailor, in an attitude of defence. At the base are Borough arms, and the Royal monogram, "G. R.," appears at each of the bottom corners
