Sunday, January 25th. the Rev. Dr. Stevens unveiled the war memorial
at the afternoon service in the church. There was a good congregation
and the Rector, who had arranged a suitable service, preached
a very appropriate sermon. The memorial takes the form of a bronze
tablet, and is placed upon the south wall of the building. The
tablet is worded thus: “To the glory of God and in grateful
memory Ernest W. Lyon, Frederick Starr and Wilbert Warman, men
of East Hatley, who gave their lives for God and the Right in
the Great War, 1914-1918. This tablet was erected by friends and
neighbours.” The memorial is simple, plain and good, and
is cost some £23. Mrs. Rayner, the wife of one of the churchwardens,
has done more than anyone to raise the money. Assisted by Miss
Bond Smith, Miss Halstead. Miss Davies and Mrs. Drage, she arranged
a jumble sale, which realised £4 16s. 4d. The Rev. Dr. Stevens,
Sir Charles Hamilton. Mr. George Longman, Mr. Bond Smith (churchwarden),
and a collection from the villagers have almost wiped out the
balance. It is hoped the landowners, Downing College, may give
something to help, in which case the expenses of the tablet will
be met entirely.
Roll of Honor for the former Church in East Hatley is in the church
