Albert composed this quarter peal whilst serving in the frontline trenches and suggested that it might be appropriate for half-muffled ringing.
We therefore dedicate this performance to the memory of CSM William Arthur Ely who died on 21/03/1918 aged 28. Lincolnshire Regiment 1st Bn, commemorated at Pozieres Memorial, France. A ringer at the Norman Tower, Bury St Edmunds.
