The Brushes War Memorial

I found a piece in the Sheffield Daily Telegraph 13th June 1922 detailing the unveiling of the War Memorial, the transcript is below.

Captain Victor Robinson, MC unveiled the Sheepbridge and Brushes War Memorial, which is a bronze tablet affixed to the wall of The Brushes Council School. The tablet contains the name of the soldiers from the Old Whittington parish who made the supreme sacrifice. The Rev. E. A. Crompton (Rector of Whittington) dedicated the memorial.

When The Brushes school was demolished the plaque was saved and is now situated close to where the old school was on the old Sheffield road (B6057).
