The creation of the Memorial

 
BLUNDELLSANDS WAR MEMORIAL.

UNVEILED BY THE EARL OF DERBY AT ST.NICHOLAS'.

     The Earl of Derby, K.G., on Sunday afternoon unveiled three stained glass memorial windows erected at St. Nicholas' Parish Church, Blundellsands, to the memory of 54 Churchmen and Nonconformists of the parish who fell in the war. There was a crowded congregation, and the service was very impressive. The chancel screen was effectively decorated with flags, and a large banner of St.George was suspended from above. The service was conducted by the Vicar, the Rev. B. Selwyn Smith, and the memorial was dedicated by the Lord Bishop of Hereford, Dr. M. Linton Smith, a former Vicar of Blundellsands.
     The hymn, "How bright these glorious glorious spirits shine," was sung as a processional, and after appropriate psalms and prayers, the Nunc Dimittis was chanted, while the choir and clergy proceeded to the baptistry. The congregation stood facing westward as Lord Derby, drawing aside two large flags that veiled the windows, said:- "To the Glory of God and the adornment of His Sanctuary, I unveil these Windows, erected by their relatives and friends, in perpetual and loving memory of the men from this Parish and Congregation who lost their lives in the Great War, 1914-1918." "For their sacrifice and good example, thanks be to God."
     The Last Post was sounded, and the choir then sang the anthem, to Tschaikowsky's beautiful setting, "How blest are they whom Thou choosest and takest O Lord. Their memorial is from one generation to another."
     The Bishop dedicated the windows, reading the names of the fallen:-

     An eloquent sermon was preached by the Bishop, in the course of which he said they met to honour those who had not lost their lives but who had given their lives, given freely the most precious thing a man could give. Their sacrifice was a challenge to those left behind not to be unworthy, not to fall short in the stern battle of life as they did not fall short in the stern test of war. They could best show themselves worthy by making it a rule of their lives to give to the service of others as those whom they honoured gave to their service.
     The Te Deum was sung, and the service was concluded with the sounding of the Reveille and the singing of the National Anthem.
     The Memorial Windows represent the subjects War and Peace, the rose-window at the top being filled with the coats of arms of fifteen of the regiments to which the fallen belonged.
     The left window - representing War - bears in the topmost panel of the tracery the Lamb with the Banner of the Resurrection; beneath are five cherubs bearing the emblems of the Passion - from left to right, the Scourge, the Ladder, the Nails, the Crown of Thorns, and the Spear and Sponge. Beneath the tracery in the main lights are cherubs bearing the Arms of England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, and Belgium. Below there come the main figures - Joshua, the conqueror of Palestine, with the picture of the incident in the battle of Bethoron where he bids the Sun stand still; the Archangel Michael, with the picture of his triumph over the dragon - "there was war in heaven" - and King David, with the picture of the slaying of Goliath.
     In the right window - representing Peace - the topmost panel in the tracery bears the Emblem of the Holy Spirit - The Dove of Peace - and underneath it in the tracery seven cherubs bearing scrolls - inscribed with the Fruits of the Spirit - "Love - Joy - Peace - Long-suffering - Gentleness - Goodness - Faith." The main figures represent St. Paul, the conquering missionary to the Gentiles, with his conversion on the road to Damascus; the Archangel Gabriel with his message to the Shepherds, "Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men," - and Solomon, the King of Peace, building the Temple.
