S. LEIGH.

WALTON TIMES Friday 21st March 1919

 
OUR GALLANT DEAD.
MEMORIAL UNVEILING AT SALISBURY ROAD SCHOOL.
     Ninety-six Old Boys of Salisbury-road School, Bootle, gave their lives for King and Country during the recent war. Their names are inscribed on a neat Memorial Tablet which has just been placed in the School. These were but a small proportion of those who joined the colours, and happily many have returned safe and well to their homes and civil duties. The unveiling of the Memorial Tablet on Friday night constituted a great patriotic demonstration. Unfortunately the Mayor (Mr. H. Pennington) who has taken a great practical interest in these school efforts and has liberally seconded each of them, was unable to be present owing to an important engagement elsewhere. The Mayoress, however, attended and was accompanied by the Deputy Mayor (Ald. Dr. Pearson), and Mrs. Pearson. Several members of the Education Committee and other leading residents were also present, and the spacious schoolroom was packed by Old Boys and friends, also parents of present scholars. Proceedings appropriately commenced with the hearty singing of "O God, our Help in ages past."
     The Headmaster (Mr. S. Leigh), who presided, gave a warm welcome to the visitors. That, he said, was a memorable occasion for Salisbury-road School. About a year ago, the teachers had the joy of welcoming home "old boys" of the school who had returned from the stricken fields of France and Flanders, or from their not less dangerous work on the perilous seas. It was a happy re-union. Past hardships were for the time forgotten in the renewal of friendships of early days. They hoped to have another social gathering before long. It was with mixed feeling they assembled that night. They were grateful for having secured a victorious peace (hear, hear). Never in the world's history had there been a war in which the causes of right and wrong were so clearly separated. We were fighting for justice and righteousness, and the Divine Hand had led us safely through. They were proud as they thought of the wonderful courage, tenacity, endurance, and cheerfulness of their former scholars. It had been proved to them by experience that their work and influence had not been in vain.
     The business of a teacher was not only to impart the rudiments of education to the pupils. They had a far greater task than that to perform. They must by vigilance, patience and personal influence so lead forth the budding powers of the children that their scholars should develop habits of industry, cheerfulness under difficulty, initiative, honesty, kindness, and courage. Those elements that combine to make the indomitable British spirit of which they were all so justly proud (hear, hear). If they did not help to make good citizens their work was a failure (hear, hear). When they thought of the band of heroes of the Army, Navy and Mercantile Marine, who not many years ago sat as scholars in those desks, they rejoiced with parents in the knowledge that they had so nobly performed their duty (applause). They had feelings of sorrow and deep sympathy with the relatives of the fallen. Those who had lost dear ones, most of them on the threshold of manhood, had suffered a grievous blow. But they knew that these lads had nobly given their lives in the cause of justice and righteousness. They had fought a good fight, and the Christian faith pointed clearly to their eternal reward (hear, hear). The memorial to be unveiled in their honour, provided by the combined contribution of teachers, scholars, parents and friends, was erected that they might always cherish their memory, that they might think of them with deep gratitude, and that their influence might be a source of inspiration to the scholars within those walls. They must never forget what these lads had done for us. That glorious ideal, the League of Nations, contained the germ of international peace. It remained for the people to ensure its success (applause).
     The Rev. J.C.G. Mercer, M.A., B.D., vicar of St Leonard's, read a portion of Scripture appropriate to the occasion (I. Thess., iv. 10), commencing "I would not have you to be ignorant brethren concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not even as others which have no hope." Prayer was offered by the Rev. E.W. Toms, B.A. (Presbyterian), and the hymn, "For all the saints," was sung by the whole audience.
     The Deputy Mayor, after apologising for the absence of the Mayor, who, he said, was attending a very important meeting, remarked that his Worship had taken very great interest in these school war memorials, and had helped them on considerably. It was hoped too that before the year was out they would have set about raising a general Memorial worthy of the town and the dignity of the cause for which these men had fought and died (hear, hear). Already they had a long Roll of Honour, but on a general memorial they would probably have a thousand or more names. These lads furnished an army such as Britain never had before, and their achievements had been great indeed. They went into the work with tremendous enthusiasm, and of their efforts we had every reason to be proud. One realised the extreme good these lads had done for our country, but he did not think the nation realised even yet what the issue was, and what might have happened had the result been otherwise than it turned out to be. In fact it seemed that we as British never thought we could lose. But had such a thing happened he himself could hardly conceive what the result might have been. In some previous wars there had been difficulty in deciding which nation had right on their side. But in this instance no such difficulty had been raised. Undoubtedly we were in the right, and the other side in the wrong. That he felt could be proved to demonstration. He trusted the League of Nations would come to a successful issue, and that as an outcome  permanent peace would be assured (hear, hear). In any case they could rely upon it that the men who had suffered would not be forgotten. The national conscience had been stirred, and it was intended to see them through. These memorials which should be in every place were only a small portion of the debt they owed and intended to pay (applause).
     The Mayoress then, upon the Chairman's call, deftly unveiled the tablet, and Mr. J.W. Ross read a list of the names upon it.

     It is interesting to note that the memorial has been executed by Messrs Jas. Scott, Ltd., of Knowsley-road. Mr. Scott is one of the "old boys" of Salisbury-road, and sincere thanks were accorded to that gentleman for his kindly personal interest and generous assistance to the scheme.
     The memorial consists of three brass tablets with the names of the fallen engraved thereon. These are mounted in an ornamental oak framework. Over the top of the centrepiece is the inscription "Their name liveth for evermore." Below is a laurel wreath with a scroll containing the words "Duty nobly done." The inscription below the middle tablet reads as follows:- "In glorious memory of the "Old Boys" of this school who gave their lives for justice and righteousness in the great European War, 1914-19."
     A plain stone slab is being fixed on the outer wall of the school building, visible to all passers-by. It carries the following inscription:- "In glorious memory of ninety-six "old boys" of this school who nobly gave their lives for justice and righteousness, and whose names are inscribed on the Memorial Table inside the school."
     After the names had been read the Last Post was sounded by the bugler. Then followed "God of our Fathers," which was heartily sung by the audience. The Benediction and singing of the National Anthem closed a very successful function.
