Council Minutes 9th February

An interesting ceremony was now introduced. This was the formal presentation by the Mayor of the Military Medal to Private G Barwick, 9th West Riding Regiment, and Sapper A L Dickinson, of the Royal Engineers, for bravery in the field.

The Mayor, in making the presentations, said he hoped that they would wear their decorations in honour of what they had done for the King and country and look upon them as duty done and country served, and that they would live long enough to enjoy the distinction.
