100th anniversary of memorial to Captain Keith Green

From the Daily Herald, Saturday 25 September 1915 : -



To-morrow morning, after the 9 o'clock  service at St. Mary Magdalene Church Moore Street, a flag will be hoisted at the St. Peter's College Mission Building.

The flag and pole have been subscribed for and presented by the wives and mothers of men who have gone to the front. On the first Monday in each month a social afternoon is given to relatives of the soldiers, and they arranged this gift.

After evensong Canon Girdlestone, the head master of St. Peter's College, will unveil a memorial in the large hall of the mission to Captain Keith Green, who fell at Gallipoli on April 25, and who was formerly scoutmaster to the boy scouts of the mission.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.
