Memorial at Curdridge to Edwin Wellstead, ringer killed during World War 1.

The Communion service at Curdridge this morning, 11th August, had an unusual feature – the dedication of a framed document in memory of Edwin Wellstead. Edwin was a bell ringer at St Peter’s church before the First World War, and was unfortunately killed one hundred and four years ago this August 13th when the transport ship ‘Royal Edward’ that he was travelling on to Gallipoli was torpedoed north of Crete. Over seven hundred men died.

Ringing in Edwin’s memory took place four years ago near the centenary of his death, but I thought it would be good to have a more tangible memorial.

I researched his history for the local history society booklet in memory of those killed in WW1, but since then was able to obtain a photograph of Edwin from Mrs Jean Aburrow, the daughter of Edwin’s younger sister. I therefore rewrote the notes to include Edwin’s picture, had it framed by the Penny Farthing Gallery in Botley, and it was dedicated this morning by the Reverend Jane Richards, as shown in the attached photograph. It is now displayed on the wall of the ringing room in Curdridge church.

Press Release: WW1 Centenary Commemoration Service Days at Portsmouth and Winchester 12th and 19th May

This Press Release below has been issued to  Winchester Diocese and Cathedral promoting church/ringers/community working together and a young ringer very much involved.

Here is Leigh, Ringing Remembers Ringer, proudly showing her Ringing Remembers certificate. Leigh gave a presentation to her school and the text is displayed here.

Ringing Remembers: Leigh’s learning to ring story.

In February 2017 at Brighstone we had two bells cast at Whitechapel foundry in London. They were cast on the penultimate day of casting before the foundry closed after being in continuous business since 1570. The new treble was funded by the Society for the Preservation of Isle of Wight Church Bells and the new number 2 by local ringers and friends. Leigh was there on the 4th April when the bells arrived. Leigh’s dad helped with the augmentation of the bells. We were able to ring all eight bells on 24th April. Leigh has been learning to ring the church bells at St Mary’s church since August 2017. Sadly, 1,400 bell ringers died during World War 1. To honour there memory, the campaign Ringing Remembers set out to recruit 1,400 new bell ringers to be able to ring on Remembrance Sunday. Leigh signed up and rang four times during Remembrance Sunday. She rang twice for the service and twice in the evening to coincide with the beacons that were being lit nationally. Leigh mostly rings the number 2 bell, but she has rung the 1 and 4. She rings rounds and call changes during Friday evening practice and for the Sunday morning service. Leigh is currently the youngest ringer on the island. At the moment she can confidently ring either the handstroke or the backstroke with help from Beccy her instructor. Leigh’s next step will be to ring both stokes gaining complete control of the bell. If anyone fancy giving ringing a go, speak to Beccy Noyes who is tower captain at Brighstone. Practice night 19:00 to 20:00 on Tuesdays. “I really, really love ringing.”
Leigh.


Winchester and Portsmouth Anglican Cathedrals will be hosting special services to give thanks for all people lost in World War One and to acknowledge the role of bell ringers during that conflict and in all our communities.

On 12th May at 6 p.m. in Portsmouth and on 19th May at 3.30 p.m. in Winchester, local dignitaries will be joining bell ringers and cathedral congregations as part of the commemorations of the Centenary of the end of The Great War. As a mark of respect for all those who made the supreme sacrifice for us, members of  The Winchester and Portsmouth Diocesan Guild of Church Bell Ringers will present each cathedral with an archive; the volumes detail the Guild’s ringing performances, rung since 1914, in honour and memory of the men and women who died in World War One.

Bishop Christopher of Portsmouth says ‘The ringing of church bells across the U.K. remained restricted throughout World War One. How wonderful that we are free to play our part in honouring all those that died as a result of the dreadful conflict.’ He recognises the special performances in the printed volume as ‘recording over a century of bell ringing from the tolling of a single bell to the most complicated of peals, from tiny village churches to Cathedrals.’

Bishop Tim of Winchester reflects ‘The statistics are abhorrent: more than nine million fighting men, out of 65 million from 30 countries, died in  World War One. It was devastating and hard to escape its impact. On 11th November 1918 peals of bells once more rang freely, breaking the near silence that had been brought about by the four years of war. Today, almost everyone of us, whatever our ethnic, national or religious roots, is aware that we have inherited a world deeply shaped by The Great War.’

On Armistice Day 1918 records from Portsmouth describe the outpouring of relief that four years war had ended…’The bells of St Thomas and St Mary were much in evidence.’  The ringers who were working in the Royal Dockyard had been allowed to leave work early to ring the bells ‘ simultaneously with a service in the front of the town hall and with hooters blowing’.

100 years on to the day, Portsmouth heard the cathedral’s half-muffled bells ring out 7000 ‘changes’ over four-and-a-half hours, remembering and honouring the 7000 residents of Portsmouth who had lost their lives in World War One.

In Winchester Cathedral the, then, Winchester Diocesan Guild of Bell Ringers’ own war memorial is to be found; an oak tablet recording the names of the fallen. A significant tribute to the Guild’s members lost in The Great War are two bells, cast especially, and installed in the tower in 1921.

Over 1,400 bell ringers died as a result of World War One – more than 60 were ringers from The Winchester and Portsmouth Guild area. ‘Ringing Remembers’ was a worldwide recruitment campaign to symbolically replace those 1,400 bell ringers. There were many new  ringers of all ages recruited from the two Dioceses in 2018. Leigh Ruszczyk, aged 5, from Brighstone, Isle of Wight was one of the 2,804 new ringers who rang bells on  Remembrance Day 2018.

In Winchester Cathedral grounds during the afternoon of 19th May there will be the Chamborough Mobile Belfry. Passers-by will be invited to have a go on the delightful, tiny bells….there will be plenty of help on hand for visitors wanting their first attempt at tower bell ringing.

Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Ringers
Great War Memorial Booklet
Compiled by Robert Wellen

56 pages | Illustrated | £5.00
Publication Date: 1 May 2019. ISBN: 978-1-78972-194-2

This Booklet has been produced after five years of commemorations across the Guild marking the centenary of the Great War. It is fully illustrated throughout.
An original artwork created for the Guild by Westbury artist Helen Chester (www. helenchesterarts.co.uk), great granddaughter of Private Fred Kerley (killed 1914), pictured above, depicts the 89 known ringers from the Diocese who were killed in the war, against a backdrop of our cathedral and some of the churches where they rang. The front 15 ringers are actual likenesses, drawn from contemporary photographs. This picture is shown on the front cover of the Booklet.

Contents include: Guild Memorial and Cathedral Commemorations, Ringers from the Diocese who Died (biographical details and details of ringing commemorations), Towers and Branches, The „Ypres Bells‟, Other Commemorative Ringing and Events, Armistice Centenary and Post war. The Booklet also contains wartime extracts from Guild Reports and The Ringing World.
“For the first time, in this publication, you will have in one place information that previously stood separately. The impact of the whole is all the more moving. Guild members and those from beyond will value and appreciate this Booklet both now and in years to come”. Robert Wellen, Guild Master and compiler of the Booklet.
“Lest we forget, this history reminds us of real people and costly lives–people from our communities, our predecessors committed to ringing bells in towers where we now stand. It is good to know them by name and to recognise their significance for us today”. An extract from a Foreword to the Booklet by +Nicholas Holtam, Bishop of Salisbury and Patron of the Guild

Invitation for all ringers to attend a service at Portsmouth Cathedral or Winchester Cathedral and Presentation of the Winchester & Portsmouth Diocesan Guild Record of Ringing in remembrance of those who gave their lives in the Great War 1914-1918

Invitation for all ringers to attend a service at Portsmouth Cathedral or Winchester Cathedral and Presentation of the Winchester & Portsmouth Diocesan Guild Record of Ringing in remembrance of those who gave their lives in the Great War 1914-1918

Firstly, thank you all for the ringing which took place during November 2018 to commemorate 100 years since the Great War.  It was a marvellous response!   Since this time the WW1 project team has been beavering away recording this ringing and any other celebratory ringing which took place from 1914 to remember those fallen who died during the Great War.  The book has now been completed and is with the printers – 480 sides of A4 – over 1,400 records.  A remarkable achievement!  Please be reminded though that we are still recording any further performances from 1st December 2018 in a Digital Archive which we are updating until the end of the year, so please continue to record any appropriate ringing in Bellboard so we can pick this up.  A link to the Digital Archive will be available in due course via both Cathedral websites as well as our own Guild website.  More details of this to follow.

Two copies of the book will be presented; one to Portsmouth Cathedral and one to Winchester Cathedral at evensong services as follows:

Portsmouth Cathedral – 12th May at 6pm

Winchester Cathedral – 19th May at 3.30pm

We have just finished sending out invitations to all of the 180+ churches where ringing took place and the responses have started to come in.  Whilst this has been happening we have been in discussion about what else we can provide for you, the ringers.  We have not completely tied everything down but would like to give you an update of where we are and send out a formal invite.

12th May – Opportunity to ring at other churches prior to the event including Portsmouth Cathedral itself. 

19th May – Mini ring will be provided in front of Winchester Cathedral.  See link http://www.charmborough.org.  Opportunity to ring at the Cathedral before the service.  

So are you interested in attending?  We really hope that you are and “Ringing Remembers” ringers please wear your badges proudly!

So what do you need to do?

1) If you are able to attend can you please email me at letting me know your name(s), tower and which service(s) you would like to attend.  Partners and families are also more than welcome.

Please include whether you would like to ring or not and if so at Portsmouth area or Winchester.

2) Are you able to help at all?  We are looking for helpers to:

  • Make Cakes
  • Assist with serving cakes, teas and coffee after the services, to ringers and invited dignitories
  • Be around before and after the services to chat with the invited clergy and other guests

If you can help then please let me know at wphonsec@gmail.com

Full details of churches where you can ring and timings will follow as soon as possible.

I look forward to hearing from you.

In remembrance of the 100th anniversary of the death of Ronald Mowbray Harvey in the Great War of 1914-1918. He was the third child and second son of Richard and Alice Harvey who were married in 1889 and were a farming family at West Afton and later Newbarn Farm, Calbourne. Following the outbreak of the First World War in August 1914 Ronald joined the Isle of Wight Rifles as Private Soldier 31598. He later transferred to the Machine Gun Corps (Infantry) as Private Soldier 67167 serving with the 170th Company in France. He was wounded in the Battle of Messines a few miles west of the town of Armentieres. He died from his wounds on 12 June 1917, aged 22 years. He is buried in the Estaires Communal Cemetery and Extension. The cemetery is located about 8 miles west of Armentieres on the outskirts of the town of Estaires and was used mainly for British and Commonwealth burials. The cemetery contains 875 burials from the 1914-1918 war 63 of which are unidentified and 9 burials from the withdrawal of the British Expeditionary Force to Dunkirk at the end of May 1940. The town of Estaires was occupied by French cavalry on 15 October 1914 and passed at once into British hands where it was used as a Field Ambulance centre and a Casualty Clearing Station as early as November 1914. On 10 April 1918 the town was captured by German forces after an obstinate defence by the 50th (Northumbrian) Division and was finally retaken by British troops at the beginning of September 1918. His name is recorded on the Parish War Memorial at St Georges Church, Arreton, and on the Arreton Roll of Honour. His name is also recorded on a diamond shaped marble plaque on the north wall of All Saints Church, Calbourne. Unusually for such a plaque it records the death of a private soldier, not an officer. Ronald’s mother Alice died in 1930 aged 68 years and his father Richard died in 1947, aged 86 years.

In remembrance of the 100th anniversary of the death in the Great War of 1914- 1918 of Private 24733 William Cecil James. He was born in 1898 the son of Frank James, a Farm Carter, and his wife Annie Janet James nee Saunders of Vicarage Cottage, Arreton.

His name is recorded as C James on the parish War Memorial at St Georges Church Arreton and on the Arreton Roll of Honour. His name is also commemorated on the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial which bears the names of more than 54,000 officers and men whose graves are not known. The site of the Menin Gate was chosen because of the hundreds of thousands of British and Commonwealth soldiers who passed through it on their way to the battlefields of Ypres, Messines Ridge and Passchendaele. Each night at 8pm traffic is stopped at the Menin Gate while members of the local Fire Brigade sound the Last Post in the roadway under the Memorial’s arches. The memorial was designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield with sculpture by Sir William Reid-Dick and was unveiled by Lord Plumer on 24 July 1927. The Second Battle of Ypres In April 1915 is remembered as the first time poison gas was used on the battlefield when it was released by the German forces into the Allied lines north of Ypres.

In remembrance of the 100th anniversary of the death in the Great War of 1914-1918 of Private 38519 Percy William Dashwood. Percy was born in 1898 the son of William and Nellie Dashwood nee Trueman of 8 Newcomen Road, Lake. He was one of a family of eight children. His father William died in 1910. His mother Nellie was later remarried to James Godden and the family continued to live at 8 Newcomen Road, Lake.

Percy died on 18 November 1917, aged 19 years, in action on the Western Front in Belgium. He was serving with the 2nd Battalion Royal Berkshire Regiment during the Third Battle of Ypres and Passchendaele. His name is recorded on the Parish War Memorial at Lake and on the Tyne Cot Memorial to the Missing in Belgium. Tyne Cot is the largest war cemetery in the world and is located 5 miles north-east of the town of Ypres. The Second Battle of Ypres in 1915 became infamous when the Germans released poisonous gas onto the battlefield, the first time such a weapon had ever been used. In 1871 William and Mary Ann Dashwood the grandparents of Percy lived at Toll Cottage, a small wood fronted cottage on the main Sandown to Shanklin road at Lake. William was a dealer in china and glass. Mary Ann, or one of her children, would collect a toll from travellers of three pennies for one horse or six pennies for a pair. An incident occurred on one occasion when the toll charges were increased. The tollgates remained closed when anyone refused to pay and an irate wagoner drove his horses through the gates smashing them to pieces. Toll Cottage was eventually replaced by a post office and a grocery shop. Edith Trott nee Dashwood a younger sister of Percy lived at 2 Red Lion Cottages, Main Road, Arreton, during the 1960’s with her husband Reginald Trott a builder. Their daughter Christine Faulkner nee Trott is the niece of Percy and is also a bell ringer at St George’s Church, Arreton.

The family requested the tolling of the bell in remembrance of Percy giving his life in the service of his country. A donation was made to the funds of St George’s Church in appreciation of this.

In remembrance of the 100th anniversary of the death in the Great War of 1914 – 1918 otherwise known as the First World War of Lance Corporal 17624 Robert Wallace Mackett. He was born in 1893 at Long Lane, Staplers, Newport, (then part of Arreton) the son of William Mackett, a Railway Platelayer, and Ellen Mackett nee Chiverton. The family continued living at Long Lane and Robert, on reaching employable age, became a Farm Carter and later joined the Hampshire Police as a Police Constable. Following the outbreak of the Great War in 1914 serving members of the police service were exempted from compulsory military service. Robert along with many other serving police officers did volunteer for military service even though those officers volunteering were told this would mean the loss of police pension entitlements for the period of their absence on military service. This ruling was later rescinded. Robert died on 27th August 1918 aged 25 years whilst on active service with the Second Battalion Coldstream Guards in France following heavy fighting and the eventual capture by allied forces of the village of Croisilles. He is buried at Croisilles British Cemetery, Pas de Calais, France, which is located approximately 8 miles south east of Arras. The cemetery contains 1171 graves of allied soldiers of which 647 have not been identified. It also contains the graves of 6 allied airmen killed in the Second World War and 18 German war graves. His name is recorded on the Arreton Parish War Memorial at St George’s Church Arreton, the Arreton Parish Roll of Honour and the Hampshire Constabulary War Memorial at Police Headquarters, Romsey Road, West Hill, Winchester. The Hampshire Constabulary War Memorial bears the names of 21 members of the force who lost their lives in the Great War. The memorial was designed by Captain A J Roberts the County Architect, the building work was carried out by Messrs Vokes and Beck of Stockbridge Road, Winchester and the carvings of wreaths and county badges was by Mr P J Lyness of Southampton. The memorial itself was in the form of a monumental approach to the flight of steps leading to the front entrance of the force headquarters. It was thus in a prominent position and had to be passed by everyone entering or leaving the building. The Duke of Wellington as Chairman of Quarter Sessions invited the Lord Lieutenant Major General The Right Honourable J E Seely C.B., C.M.G., D.S.O., to unveil the memorial at an impressive and moving ceremony on 27th January 1923 in the presence of dignitaries, relatives and friends of those named on the memorial, work colleagues, representatives of the armed services and of all the Divisions making up the Hampshire Constabulary and members of the public. The Isle of Wight Constabulary was represented by Police Constable Gamble. The Hampshire Police Headquarters at Winchester was demolished in the 1960’s. The site was cleared and the present headquarters was built in its place. It is not known where the memorial was relocated to. It would be a disgrace if the memorial was destroyed within 40 years of its construction and it would be a shockingly disrespectful act to the memory of these brave policeman who volunteered and made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

This performance commemorates the approximately 800 women whose deaths during the Great War are recorded by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Women were largely involved in non-combative roles, but nevertheless, they faced enormous risks. By way of example, many served with the Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service, and whilst hostile forces ought not, under the Geneva Conventions, target those who are treating the sick and injured, several hospital ships were destroyed and sunk. One of those, the Hospital ship “Glenart Castle”, was torpedoed and sunk in the Bristol Channel on 26 February 1918, when seven RAMC officers and 47 medical orderlies along with 99 of the hospital patients on board lost their lives. Eight nurses of the QAIM Nursing Service were also lost: Katy Beaufoy, Acting Matron, Rebecca Rose Beresford, Staff Nurse, aged 39, Edith Blake, Staff Nurse, aged 32, Elizabeth Edgar. Staff Nurse, Jane Evans, Sister, Charlotte Henry, Staff Nurse, Rose Elizabeth Kendall, Sister, aged 31, and Mary MacKinnon, Staff Nurse, aged 31, (Territorial Force Nursing Service). Their names are listed on the Hollybrook Memorial in Southampton, which was unveiled by the War Graves Commission in 1930, to commemorate those members of the Commonwealth forces who were lost or buried at sea and whose final resting place is unknown.

Handbell ringing

Tommy’s travels in the Basingstoke District of the W & P Guild.

Remembrance is often difficult without direct memories or those passed on through family. Men who died in war were young and so are a dead-end on their family tree diagram. Many were never fathers, grandfathers or great grandfathers with photos and prized possessions passed through the family to keep them alive in the hearts of future generations. Memories of them 100 years on are now faded in the family histories.

Taking Tommy on his travels made these brave soldiers more alive to us, as ringers we had an insight into a small aspect of their lives. We know the hard work, dedication, attention to detail and reliability needed to be part of a group of ringers; how team work is essential and that we are an extended family.

Five towers in our district lost ringers. At each tower we had open ringing on tower bells or handbells followed by a silence to remember and then tolling of the tenor for the age of the ringer. Here the stone work of the tower window had disintegrated and so no ringing of the tower bells was allowed as masonry falling onto the ringers was a real possibility. Some Bramley ringers joined us and we rang handbells in memory of Private Alec William Symonds (21). Interestingly the plaque in the church ranked him as Corporal.

Bells muffled ringing for dead heroes – Universal Observance on Intercession Sunday. Never before in the history of ringing has such united action been taken in a public observance as was the case on Sunday, when, throughout the land, with comparatively few exceptions, the bells of our churches were rung muffled “to give emphasis” in the words of the Archbishop of Canterbury, “to our sense of the loss the country has sustained by the death of the brave men who have given their lives in the cause of what we believe to be loyalty to righteousness and truth”. The one important point in connection with this special ringing was the fact that its particular purpose was brought very widely beneath the notice of the public, thanks to the publicity which was obtained through a large number of the great daily papers. Many of them quoted the Archbishop’s letter, and the ringers’ prelude to those remarkable services held on Sunday made an obvious impression. One great London daily paper dwelt upon the “note of solemnity given to the occasion by peals of muffled bells”; another said “a new and impressive note was struck at the services, for muffled peals were rung in memory of the brave men who have fallen”. Thus in varying phrase, the great journals have made known the ringers part. As for the clergy, they readily welcomed the idea of the muffled ringing, and many not only announced the purpose of the ringing, but emphasised its meaning. In hundreds of towers special touches were rung, the ringers themselves going out of their way to make adequate arrangements, and the success which attended the day’s observance was the more remarkable from the fact that in so large a number of cases the bands were seriously depleted by the contributions in men which have been made to the Forces. But if only to ring rounds, the muffles were put on, just as readily and just as willingly as if it were for a quarter peal. [Ringing World 7 January 1916].

Tommy’s travels in the Basingstoke District of the W & P Guild.

Remembrance is often difficult without direct memories or those passed on through family. Men who died in war were young and so are a dead-end on their family tree diagram. Many were never fathers, grandfathers or great grandfathers with photos and prized possessions passed through the family to keep them alive in the hearts of future generations. Memories of them 100 years on are now faded in the family histories.

Taking Tommy on his travels made these brave soldiers more alive to us, as ringers we had an insight into a small aspect of their lives. We know the hard work, dedication, attention to detail and reliability needed to be part of a group of ringers; how team work is essential and that we are an extended family.

Five towers in our district lost ringers. At each tower we had open ringing on tower bells or handbells followed by a silence to remember and then tolling of the tenor for the age of the ringer. Deane is a tiny village to the west of Basingstoke. The church has structural problems so ringing is generally restricted to special occasions and individual pieces of ringing are limited to about ten minutes in duration. The order of the bells in some changes makes them a little tricky to strike at times as tower movement makes some of the bells drop.

Two ringers from the same family were lost from this band. Lynne Jordan, of St Michael’s, Basingstoke was given the privilege of tolling the tenor for the life of Private Alfred Kirby aged 25 (about the same age as her youngest, Greg, is now and who is also a ringer). Also remembered was Private Frank Kirby (34)

H Balaam, (Basingstoke), G Pullinger (Bishopstoke), and J W Faithfull (Southampton). They were all ringers before the war, and it says much for their enthusiasm that, despite the handicap of having lost a limb, they have kept up active participation in the art. All these ringers, as well as other one-armed men, have previously rung peals, but this is believed to be the first occasion that three have taken part in the same peal.

The Winchester Diocesan Guild loses a promising young ringer, and the Guildford Holy Trinity Society its junior member, by the death, in France, of Private R W Melville, as a result of gas poisoning. The deceased was the only son of Mr W R Melville, the present steeple-keeper at Holy Trinity and was just over 19 years of age. He joined H M Forces about Easter of this year. Private Melville began his ringing career at Tring, Herts, when little more than a child, moving with his parents to Haslemere, and later to Guildford, where both he and his father joined the Holy Trinity Society. His first and only peal, one of Grandsire Triples, was rung at Chiddingfold on 26 December 1917. Members of both the Societies, with Mr J J Jones, district secretary, representing the Winchester Diocesan Guild, met in strong force at Holy Trinity to honour the boy’s memory in the usual way. Various touches of Grandsire Triples were rung with half-muffled bells, in which everyone attending had an opportunity of taking part, and the ringing concluded with a beautiful 504 Stedman Triples in very slow time.

504 Stedman Triples.

A ceremony took place on a recent Saturday, the occasion being the dedication of a memorial tablet to two members of the Holy Trinity Society, who gave their lives for their country in the recent war. The proceedings opened with the bells half-muffled by the Revs. C W O Jenkyn and E B James and six members of the Holy Trinity Society. The Rector then conducted a short form of service, and unveiled the tablet, which is of alabaster, bearing the inscription – ‘To the proud memory of Albert Victor Burdock, Robert William Melville, ringers of this tower, who gave their lives in the Great War, 1914 – 1918; in grateful remembrance of whose sacrifice this tablet is erected by the members of the Holy Trinity Society of Change Ringers. After the dedication, a short memorial service was held in the beautiful chapel of the Queen’s R W S Regiment when an address was given by the Revd. C W O Jenkyn, who spoke of the striking similarity in both age and ideals of the Winchester and Oxford Diocesan Guilds. They should remember, he said, when they uncovered a memorial, as they had that day, that it must not be with the idea that they had done all they ought to have done. The memorial should be a reminder of what had been done, of a real Christian life that had been given, and an example to those who remained to live in their time a truly godly Christian life. It reminded them also that those who were commemorated were indeed, living, and had now an actual part in what was done, though that part was not now transacted through the medium of a body. After the service, those present, numbering about 45 proceeded to the parish hall, where tea had been prepared, after which handbells were enjoyed, till, at the conclusion of the daily Evensong, the bells at Holy Trinity and St Nicolas’ Churches were available for ringing. In addition to a full attendance of Guildford ringers there were present the Revs. Sir John Herschell (hon secretary of the Winchester Guild), E Banks James, C W O Jenkyn, Canon Kirwan, Rector of Holy Trinity; Mr J W Wilkins, High Wycombe; and representative ringers from Worplesdon, Cranleigh, Chiddingfold, Haslemere, Witley and Dorking. There was also unveiled, without ceremony, a tablet of alabaster recording the first peal of Guildford Surprise Major, which was rung by the Society in 1913, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the dedication of the church, which fact is duly recorded, and which forms the only permanent record which the building contains of that event.

Following her death, the two boys were split up and John was taken in by his Uncle and Aunt, George and Lucy Series, in Stratfield Saye, where John was a bell ringer. John joined up with the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and he appears to have taken their surname as all of his military records show him as John Robert Series. In 1915 he married Daisy Francis Caroline Liddiard of Kensington, London. Tragically John was killed on 15th April 1918 and in 1923 Daisy married John’s brother George and they lived in Heckfield.

Rung with the bells half-muffled as a tribute of respect to the memory of PTE. Fredk. James Chiverton, Hampshire Regiment, a former ringer at this church, who fell in action on 30 November. Also as a mark of respect to all those from this parish who have made the supreme sacrifice.

This was the first peal for 108 years rung by a local band of ringers, and it was secured at the first attempt. Ringers of the treble, second, fourth and tenor had been “stony’ ringers for periods varying from 20 to 30 years, until 1914 when they were taken in hand by Mr H Jennings, of Ryde, who quickly got them out of the old ruts, and has now attained what was their then ambition. The ringer to whose memory the muffled peal was rung, was one of the old “stony” band. He would never attempt change ringing, but in a broad-minded manner, stood by so as not to impede others when the improvement was first introduced. But his genial and unchanging character prompted his brother ringers to do what they could do to honour him in the greatest of all sacrifices that man can be called upon to make. May he rest in peace.

First peal by all except the conductor.

We are tolling this bell today in the time-honoured way of nine strikes to represent a man (six for a woman and three a child) and after a pause 100 strikes to commemorate the centenary of the First World War death of: Cecil James Gasson on 26th November 1914. Cecil was just 14 when he joined the Royal Navy as “Boy 2nd class”. After his training he was posted on H.M.S. Bulwark. On 26th November 1914 the battleship was moored in the River Medway, Sheerness, Kent. Many of the crew had been given shore leave and had returned at 7.00am that morning and the ship had a full complement of crew. At 7.30am the ship was torn apart by a huge explosion that the Board of Enquiry attributed to overheating of cordite charges in storage. 745 men and 51 officers were killed and only 14 men survived. Cecil’s body was never found. He was just 17. His parents were George and Sarah Gasson and his father was a carpenter on the Tylney estate in Rotherwick.

Rung half-muffled with the 5th as cover in the Doubles prior to the annual Remembrance Day service.

Last year one of our band suggested an alternative way to ring Doubles for solemn occasions such as funerals, Remembrance Day and before midnight on New Year’s Eve; Rather than having the Tenor ringing last as the front five ring changes, it was suggested that the 5th ring last with the Tenor taking the place of the 5th and ringing ‘inside’. This lends an even more solemn effect to half-muffled ringing as the ‘key’ is shifted into the minor mode. We successfully tried this out in touches on Remembrance Day and New Year’s Eve last year. An advantage for the latter is that we could dispense with the muffles, thereby eliminating the usual (and risky) scramble to remove them before midnight. This year we agreed to attempt a half-muffled quarter peal prior to the Remembrance Day service using this idea. Chris Caryer’s composition comprised ringing 120 Plain Bob Minor (6th single 4ths & in) to produce 123465, then ringing 8½  extents of Plain Bob, Grandsire, St Simon’s and Reverse Canterbury Doubles with the 5th ringing last to produce the aforementioned minor key effect and, having returned to the row 123465 for the final time, repeating the 120 of Plain Bob Minor but this time with the 5th as observation bell to come back into rounds at the end of the quarter after 47 minutes of very good ringing. About ten minutes into the quarter the muffle on the 5th slipped from its position resulting in a tolling effect. that was thought by the band to be even more effective than planned. The muffle was put back for the rest of the morning’s ringing. The ringing for the later evening communion service was also half-muffled and took place without further mishap.

Stratfield Saye, St Mary

01/09/2018

Tommy’s travels in the Basingstoke District of the W & P Guild.

Remembrance is often difficult without direct memories or those passed on through family. Men who died in war were young and so are a dead-end on their family tree diagram. Many were never fathers, grandfathers or great grandfathers with photos and prized possessions passed through the family to keep them alive in the hearts of future generations. Memories of them 100 years on are now faded in the family histories.

Taking Tommy on his travels made these brave soldiers more alive to us, as ringers we had an insight into a small aspect of their lives. We know the hard work, dedication, attention to detail and reliability needed to be part of a group of ringers; how team work is essential and that we are an extended family.

Five towers in our district lost ringers. At each tower we had open ringing on tower bells or handbells followed by a silence to remember and then tolling of the tenor for the age of the ringer.

Stratfield Saye is a lovely little church on the Statfield Estate. No ringing is allowed on the bells as the tower is now too weak. However, the vicar took us up to see the bells and we were able to sound each individual bell with a hammer (an ‘interesting’ tuning of a ring of 5 bells).

Five ringers were lost from this church: Lance Corporal Joseph Binge (20); Private Thomas William Binge(22);Private Albert George Broadhurst (24); Sapper Charles Kersley (30) and Private John Robert Series ( age unknown so we tolled the tenor 26 times).

Standing where our lost Tommies would have stood in the ringing room looking at the same oak bracing beams, brick walls and circle of five ropes was a poignant moment. Probably this was the whole band that had perished and that these men had possibly all worked on the estate or in the village.

At the chancel crossing we rang handbells, mainly rounds with each person having a single bell. The vicars’ young grandson, as well as Mary Oliver who rang at St Michael’s in Basingstoke many years ago also joined in.

The churchyard has mature trees that certainly would have been growing 100 years ago giving us a further connection to the past. We all sat together between these trees and ate a picnic, then tolled the tenor handbell for each of lost from the ringing family.

Sunday Morning Ringing

The Winchester and Portsmouth Diocesan Guild have been organising an initiative called “Tommy’s Travels”. Tommy represents the ringers from the Winchester Diocesan Guild (as it was then) who fell in WW1. The W&P plan is to ring at all of the towers from which the fallen ringers came, with Tommy present for the ringing. Because the Guildford Diocese was formed on 1st May 1927 from the Diocese of Winchester, some of the towers on the W&P list are now in Guildford’s Guild. The Guildford District Quarter Peal weekend was an ideal opportunity to make this happen. Tommy made an impromptu additional appearance at West Clandon (which is outside Guildford District) attending Sunday morning ringing. Remembering two bell ringers of the tower, which at the time, was in the Winchester Diocesan Guild – Private Alfred Savage, who died 11 April 2017, and Private Charles Savage, who died 25 September 1915, aged 19, Sons of William Savage and Mary Ann Savage of Bone’s Cottage, West Clandon, Surrey.

The Tenor was tolled by Pete Jordan

Tommy’s travels in the Basingstoke District of the W & P Guild.

Remembrance is often difficult without direct memories or those passed on through family. Men who died in war were young and so are a dead-end on their family tree diagram. Many were never fathers, grandfathers or great grandfathers with photos and prized possessions passed through the family to keep them alive in the hearts of future generations. Memories of them 100 years on are now faded in the family histories.

Taking Tommy on his travels made these brave soldiers more alive to us, as ringers we had an insight into a small aspect of their lives. We know the hard work, dedication, attention to detail and reliability needed to be part of a group of ringers; how team work is essential and that we are an extended family.

Our tour started at Yateley where we remembered Lance Sergeant Charles Albert Butler, aged 21.

The Yateley Society put on a display on the village green just outside the church which encouraged the general public to come and find out about ringing and see the ringers in action.

“We remembered” – a message from the President of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers

Last Sunday – Remembrance Sunday – we were called to “look to” and take part in a most momentous commemoration.  Being so intimately linked in to our local communities, it was no surprise that bellringers everywhere stepped forward to participate, collectively and individually, in such a solemn centenary.

And it is entirely right and fitting that bells gave voice to the deep and lasting emotions felt so widely at this time.  So many today owe so much to our forebears for the freedoms and liberties that we enjoy one hundred years on.  As bellringers, we are the “external choir” that calls out across time and space, giving tribute on this day for those who have gone before.  This is what we do, this is our calling, this is our service.

On behalf of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers, I wish to thank all who participated in this historic event.  The Ringing Remembers campaign, promoted by the Central Council, has claimed some inspiring headlines – towers silent for many years have rung out once more; hundreds of bands have been augmented with new learners; tens of thousands of ringers mobilised to ring in thousands of towers – not just in the UK, but across the world; ringing featured strongly in local, national and international media; and the BellBoard website went into meltdown!

Our campaign sought to recruit 1400 new ringers, to symbolically replace those ringers who fell in the First World War.  At the most recent count, new ringer registrations for the recruitment campaign totalled 2792 – close to 200% of the original target.  The Council’s newly-stated mission is, among other things, “to promote an environment in which ringing can flourish”.  Last Sunday we witnessed what “flourish” looks like – more of that please.

Whilst it is impossible to thank all key individuals by name, I would like to pay a special tribute to Vicki Chapman – Ringing Remembers Project Coordinator, Colin Chapman – Coordinator’s “roadie”, Alan Regin – Steward of the CCCBR Rolls of Honour, Andrew Hall – developer and administrator of the Ringing Remembers web platform, and Bruce & Eileen Butler – who linked thousands of enquirers to guilds, districts and towers.  And there are so many others…

My thanks go also to all those who have come to ringing through this route – may you continue to develop in skill, and gain many happy years of fulfilment in your ringing.  And to that widespread army of ringing teachers who have risen to the challenge of training so many enthusiastic learners – well done!

Last Sunday was a day of reflection, a day of commemoration, a day of participation.  Bellringers everywhere were able to say – “I was there – I remembered”.

Tommy in Winchester – 11th November 2018

Sunday 11 November 2018

Up early this morning, bit of a shock to the system, arrived at the Cathedral at 8:30am. A long climb to the Ringing Chamber (130 steps).

 

The bells are half -muffled; rounds on 14 to start. Stopped for a ringer’s service by the Ringers Memorial, a wreath was laid by the Guild Master and all the known names of the fallen ringers were read out with their Towers. A short but poignant service.

Further ringing including Grandsire Caters, Plain Hunt Cinques and Call Changes on 12 before the Service started in the Cathedral.

Tommy in Winchester 3

The muffles were being removed as I left, there will be some open ringing starting at 12:30pm this afternoon

Tommy in Tangley – 6th Nov 2018

I was picked up on Monday and although still in my box enjoyed my ride to Kingsclere Church and listened to the Andover District Practice night; there was a mixed bag of ringing.

After spending Tuesday morning in the car being moved about as this nice lady hoovered around me; I went to Tangley Church as saw one of the Ringers Remembered volunteers practice her handling skills, improving every time.

Tommy in Tangley

After a short break a team of ringers and visitors stayed in the church to listen to the ringing of 1918 changes in memory of all those lost during WW1 from the Pastrow Benefice which includes Hatherden, Penton Mewsey, Tangley and Weyhill; the names of those lost were displayed in the Tangley Church during the ringing. Tangley is the only church in the benefice with bells.

I was packed back in my box and taken to Ludgershall via the Old Bell and Crown at Hatherden.

I am hoping to be at the Ringers WW1 Memorial in Winchester Cathedral on 11th November 2018.

 

CCCBR – A message for change ringers everywhere

We Remember

This Sunday – Remembrance Sunday – we are called to “look to” and take part in a most momentous commemoration.  Being so intimately linked in to our local communities, it is no surprise that bellringers everywhere have stepped forward to participate, collectively and individually, in this solemn centenary.

And it is entirely right and fitting that bells give voice to the deep and lasting emotions felt so widely at this time.  So many today owe so much to our forbears for the freedoms and liberties that we enjoy one hundred years on.  As bellringers, we are the “external choir” that calls out across time and space, giving tribute on this day for those who have gone before.  This is what we do, this is our calling, this is our service.

———————————–

I vow to thee, my country, all earthly things above
Entire and whole and perfect, the service of my love;
The love that asks no question, the love that stands the test,
That lays upon the altar the dearest and the best;
The love that never falters, the love that pays the price,
The love that makes undaunted the final sacrifice.

And there’s another country, I’ve heard of long ago,
Most dear to them that love her, most great to them that know;
We may not count her armies, we may not see her King;
Her fortress is a faithful heart, her pride is suffering;
And soul by soul and silently her shining bounds increase,
And her ways are ways of gentleness, and all her paths are peace.

Bells on Radio Solent this weekend!

This is the latest we have from Tim Daykin at BBC Radio Solent re: Bells this weekend…

Tim Daykin is broadcasting live from Royal Victoria Country Park Chapel.

Hopefully there will be a clip from the ringing of 1918 Plain Bob Triples at New Alresford recently reported here and a talk-up about the national ringing. This will most likely be towards the end of the programme.

Francis Mitchell has kindly supplied information to Tim re: the Chapel and its bells.

“Yes, I opened the Chapel and ran Tower Tours with volunteers from the Friends Group for over 4 years until the Chapel closed for the recent refurbishment.

The Chapel tower holds a clock chime of 3 bells (Whitechapel 1862) which were hung dead and sounded by clock hammers. The largest is the half ton hour bell which also has an internal clapper to which a rope was attached so it could be sounded as a service bell. I eventually persuaded Hants County Council to get a rope reattached so the bell could be “rung” on Tower Tours, as it is now.”
Tim’s show is broadcast from 6-9am on Sunday

 

Message to all our “Ringing Remembers” Ringers

To all our “Ringing Remembers” ringers, we wish you well for Sunday. Wear those badges with pride, you deserve to, for sure!

Armistice 2018 will be very meaningful for all of us ringers and we’re pleased and honoured to have you join us for this special Commemoration ringing tribute for the nation. Thank you all for your hard work and personal commitment that was necessary to reach the stage of being able to participate in Armistice  2018 ringing.

Most likely, you will have spoken to David Mattingley or me when you were first introduced to our Guild, or our conversations might have been by email. We look forward to meeting you all in person in a ringing room in the not-too-distant future.

Meanwhile, best wishes once again for Sunday and please consider letting me know of your experiences of your WW1 Centenary Commemoration ringing on Sunday.

Thank you all and your tutors who have worked vey hard consistently to achieve amazing results.

Guild Public Relations Officer
