Half-muffled commemoration for the Centenary of the signing of the Armistice of 1918 and the end of World War I. Rung in tribute to the Fallen of this Parish, with the length specially selected to remember also the 1400 bellringers from throughout our nation who lost their lives.
"We have seen the salvation of the Lord. We have been almost oppressed with a thankfulness that seems to defy expression. Yet in this expression lies our duty. PEACE hath her victories no less renowned than War."
The words of Revd. Cyril Jenkyn MC, Master ODG 1918, awarded the Military Cross for 'conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during operations'.
First in method as conductor
