Ringing for the Rolls of Honour for Bell Ringers – Sergeant Percy William Worsfold

Matt Watts Writes:
I received the email below from Alan Regan with reference to a Sergeant Percy William Worsfold who died during the First World War on January 21st 1916.
Just for information we rang a quarter peal last night before our practice (On the anniversary)

Alan Regan Writes:
Serjeant Percy William Worsfold, Alton, Winchester Diocesan. Died 21/01/1916 age 37. Hampshire Regiment 1st/4th Bn. Service No. 200042.
Commemorated at Basra Memorial, Iraq, Panel 21 and 63.. Son of Edwin and Emily Selina Worsfold, of Stonebridge, Shalford, Guildford.
Born: Guildford, Surrey Enlisted: Alton, Hants Resided: Alton, Hants.
He is listed in the Great War Roll of Honour, with his name unfortunately spelled incorrectly, as follows:
Percy William Worsfold
His name appears on the War Memorial in Alton, the unusually constructed one close to the Curtis Museum and in his “home” village of Shalford.
As we are approaching the Centenary of his death I was wondering if it might be possible to arrange some ringing at Alton to commemorate his sacrifice on or close to the anniversary of his death?
