Morisset Hospital Memorial ChapelPrint Page
Morisset Hospital Memorial Chapel was erected in memory of five staff members who died in service or were killed in action during World War Two.
An appeal for £7000 has been launched by the Morisset Hospital Memorial Chapel Committee to provide a place for divine worship at the institution. Next Sunday at the hospital, which has 1200 patients and a staff of 200, the foundation stone for the Memorial Chapel to the five staff members who were killed during World War II will be unveiled at 2 p.m. by Lieut. Gen. H. Gordon Bennett, former commander of the 8th Division. The five staff members were in the 8th Division. A spokesman for the committee said today that one-third of the staff had enlisted. Six of them went into the 8th Division's 2/10 Field Ambulance and only one survived. Those killed were Robert Pallister, Samuel Fernie, Lawrence Hudson, Thomas Webb and George Burton. About £1200 has already been raised. It is hoped to have a stained glass window in the chapel.
