A very impressive ceremony marked the unveiling and dedication of the
Springfield Council School War memorial at Ipswich on Friday morning.
The memorial itself took the shape of a wooden panel, bearing the names
of no less than 46 old boys who laid down their lives for their country
in the war.
The memorial was moved from Ipswich Police station (basement) Ipswich Town Hall to Martlesham Police Headquarters Suffolk.
