About the memorial: Mission Hall.- The mission hall building was an Army Hut which had been used in a prisoner of war camp at Stanhope during the war. “The interior has been beautifully decorated and fitted up for religious purposes, and the whole of the work was voluntarily done by parishioners.” (Northern Echo ) “The interior is tastefully decorated with wood panelling half way up the wall the rest being colour-washed. The east end of the church is coloured a pale cream with red dossal hangings and later fittings to match. Part of the altar fittings were transferred from the local Council Schools, where services had previously been held.” (Auckland Chronicle ). Brass Plaque on wooden backboard with chamfered edge carries the dedication inside a slightly sunken centre panel. At centre top is a cross, with the dates “1914” and “1918” on each side. Names are listed in two columns. Lettering is in blue Roman capitals. The plaque was relocated to St Paul's when the Mission was closed and sold in 1943. The History of the Church refers to a stone tablet being moved but there is no other reason to believe that this plaque is not original
