The creation of the Memorial

 
A NOTABLE ANNIVERSARY.
MEMORIAL TABLETS UNVEILED AT LINACRE WESLEYAN MISSION.
     This year's Sunday School anniversary in connection with Linacre Wesleyan Mission was rendered specially notable by the unveiling of two memorial tablets which have been erected over the doors on either side of the platform in the large hall in honour of members who fell during the recent war. The ceremony was performed during Sunday morning's service by Mrs. Jas. Walker, in the presence of a crowded congregation.
     A bright, happy service was conducted by the Rev. Thos. Hannah, Minister in charge of the Mission. A large choir and orchestra associated with the Sunday School occupied the spacious platform, and choice instrumental and vocal music was rendered. The solos were particularly good, while both choir and orchestra contributed their quota in a manner that was highly praiseworthy. Popular hymns were heartily joined in by the congregation. Removal of Union Jacks which had temporarily covered the Memorials revealed on each side a neatly lettered brass tablet in oak frame of appropriate design. Each was inscribed "Linacre Wesleyan Mission. To the Glory of God; in honoured memory of those who sacrificed their lives in the Great War, 1914-1918," and the two combined recorded 107 names. The names recorded, said Mr. Hannah, were those of men who had been associated with their work at the Mission, and it was appropriate that the ceremony of unveiling should be performed by one who had such a revered name amongst them. Mrs. Walker, it was stated, performed the ceremony with a joyful hope and a firm belief that Jesus Christ is the Resurrection and the Life.
     Based chiefly on a passage from Ecclesiastes (ix, 14-15), the Rev. T. Hannah's short discourse was both interesting and appropriate. "There was a little city," said the writer, "and few men within in, and there came a great king against it and beseiged it, and built great bulwarks against it. Now there was found in it a poor, wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city, yet no man remembered that same poor man." Remarking on the tablets which had been unveiled, the preacher said members of the Mission had done honour to themselves in honouring the memories of those brave men who had died for their country. And while one felt a sense of gratitude that so many had been able to return, some bearing scars, and others in full health and strength, they should also be grateful to the mothers and wives and sisters of those men whose bravery in parting with their loved ones was in no wise less than that of their men-folk. There were thousands of others working for the benefit of their bretheren - Sunday School teachers and Christian workers of every degree, who were helping to save their city. Their names would not be inscribed in the township Roll of Honour, they would not get the O.B.E.; they were unknown pilgrims working quietly, unostentatiously, but through their efforts our national life had been saturated by Christian influence. What matter though they might be unknown to the world; they could all help to save their city, and to build it up for God. And so in the end they might find their names recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life.
     More singing followed, and the interesting service closed with the Benediction.
     Afterwards the Rev. T. Hannah addressed a few words to members of the Boys' Brigade from Balliol-road Church as they paraded in the street prior to marching home. They looked extremely smart and fit.
     Further services in connection with the Anniversary were held on Sunday afternoon, and there was also a meeting on Monday evening.
     The tablets, which were much admired, were designed and executed by Cowen & Son, 15, North John-street, Liverpool, at a cost of 190.
