The creation of the Memorial

 
 
  A tablet as a memorial of the late minister of Bootle Free Church, the Rev. Walter Short, has been unveiled by the Rev. Lawrence Clare, of the Church of Messiah, Birmingham, who had been a close college friend in the days of studentship. Mr. Short offered his services to the War Office and after a period of training he qualified as an officer. From the rank of second-lieutenant he rose to the position of captain and adjutant. The memorial tablet bears the inscription, "Scholar, soldier, saint." The late minister has been succeeded at Bootle Free Church by his brother, the Rev. H. Fisher Short.
