ST. THOMAS A BECKET CHURCH
The memorial is of a brass plaque with single line border and dedication in black incised lettering in uppercase.
Mounted on the Chancel arch.
The inscription thereon as follows:
"TO PRESERVE THE MEMORY OF
CORPORAL W.S. NICHOLS, 17TH LANCERS.
PRIVATE E. COUSINS, GLOUCESTERSHIRE REGIMENT."
"BOTH MEN OF THIS PARISH WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES
FOR THEIR COUNTRY IN SOUTH AFRICA 1899-1902."
"BLESSED BE THE LORD MY STRENGTH WHO TEACHETH MY HANDS TO WAR AND MY FINGERS TO FIGHT."
Unfortunately, the church was locked on my visit as I was passing through the village today.
If anyone should have a picture of the plaque, please feel free to add to the thread.
