At the morning service the roll of honour, presented by in anonymous donor, was unveiled. This bears the inscription "For King and Country." and it is intended to inscribe on it the names of all the soldiers belonging to the Westbury Methodist Church who give their lives for King and country in the great war. Already two names are inscribed thereon, viz., W. H. Roots and F. V. Searle. The roll of honour was unveiled by Miss Gladys Roots and Miss Vera Searle (sisters of the deceased soldiers).
