follow a number of different trails on our searches. Here's
a delightful memorial we came across in Folkestone, not then
on display. It's from the Sidney Street School, once also
known as the George Spurgen School.
The central plaque reads: "In proud
memory of those from this school who gave their lives in
defence of our honour 1914-18". Left is a detail from that plaque.
At the foot of the plaque is engraved the name of C H
Stevens, of Folkestone. This was Charles Hastings Stevens,
who was an art and craft teacher. A similar plaque is
on the North
Board School memorial..
wood of the memorial is oak, and has shrunk with age.
