About the memorial: At Holbeach Wesleyan Church On Wednesday the stained glass memorial windows were inserted in the Wesleyan Church, Holbeach, at the west end of the building one each side of the organ. As the Church is entered by the main entrance the beautiful colouring of the windows portraying biblical subjects quickly catches the eye. They are the work of Messrs Abbott and Co. Ltd. of Lancaster and London, and the one on the right hand of the organ bears the following inscription : - “Glory to God and on earth Peace,” “So they passed over and all the trumpets sounded for them on the other side. To the Glory of God and in memory of the men of this Church and Sunday School who fell in the Great War 1914 – 1919.” The window on the left side is inscribed : - “Blessed are the peace makers.” At the top of the window and below “I have fought the good fight” “T the Glory of God and to the memory of John Reginald only son of C. H. and E. E. Mashford, killed in action in Frances May 3rd 1917.” [the inscriptions are the opposite of above] The dedication ceremony is to take place on Wednesday. A brass tablet inscribed with the names of the fallen is also to be placed in a prominent position below the rostrum where the majority of the congregation will be able to see indelibly printed the names of those members of the Church who made the supreme sacrifice in the great conflict.
