Failed quarter peal attempt after a rope malfunction.
Rung by the local band with the bells half muffled to commemorate the centenary of the death of Sergeant HERBERT INGALL, who was killed in action on 16th August 1917 at Passchendaele, aged 25, whilst serving in the Lincolnshire Regiment 2nd Battalion. Herbert is commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial in Belgium.
Herbert was a bell ringer at this Church, being a member of the local band until he enlisted. He learnt to ring at Timberland along with his two brothers Amos & Fred.
Herbert was born in Timberland, son of John & Elizabeth Ingall and is commemorated on the village War Memorial which is on the west end of the church tower. His two brothers Amos & Fred both served in and survived the Great War and upon returning home rang for the rest of their lives, Amos at Branston & Timberland and Fred at Timberland.
All three of the Ingall brothers took part in the Somme in 1916 and survived even though Amos was wounded twice in the leg during the Somme and was medically discharged bringing an end to his active service.
Fred continued to serve on the Western Front being awarded the Military Medal in 1917 and survived the Great War.
Amos died in 1983 aged 94 & Fred died in 1996 aged 100.
