Memorial to Fallen Heroes. At a meeting of the Ammanford Parish Church Council held on Thursday, the 14th inst., the question of erecting a suitable memorial to our fallen heroes was discussed. It was generally agreed that there would be probably a national, a county, and possibly a town or district memorial. As there are so many ways in which the Church-people of this parish can suitably commemorate those who have died for us, and at the same time add to the utility and beauty of our churches, it was resolved that a strong appeal be made to the inhabitants of the parish to do all they can in support of this memorial. It was felt that the Church should include in the memorial all the fallen heroes from the parish. Although several very helpfi-1 suggestions were made as lo the form of the memorial, nothing was finally decided. That will come up again in its proper time. A suggestion which found favour was the setting up of a carved oak Reredos and Altar in each Church, with Memorial Tablet on the chancel wall. Other suggestions were to complete the tower of All faints' Church and place therein a clock and peal of bells. A memorial clock of the value of £ 150 has been promised by a parishioner, and is ready for installation. An- other suggestion was the erection in the neigh- bourhood of St. Thomas' of a Memorial Hall or Mission Room. The only matter finally decided was to go on with the appeal and ask I Church-people to give then first and best con- ?deratton to the project.
